When you look directly up at the sky, you are actually looking through a very tall, transparent column of air that extends from the surface of the Earth thousands of kilometers into space. If the air in this column were liquefied, how tall would it be? The density of liquid air is 0.89 g/ml.

1 atm = 1033.228 g/cm2
 
 the coloum height = 1033.228 g/cm2 x (1 cm3 / 0.89 g/ml) = 1200 cm
