Answer: The atmospheric pressure is lower at 15 miles above sea level than at 10 miles above sea level.
The atmospheric pressure is 14 pounds per square inch at sea level.
As the altitude approaches sea level, the atmospheric pressure increases.
Atmospheric pressure at sea level = 14 pounds per square inch
Atmospheric pressure at 10 miles above sea level= 2 pounds per square inch
Atmospheric pressure at 15 miles above sea level= 1 pounds per square inch
The atmospheric pressure decreases as the altitude increases above sea level.
The atmospheric pressure increases as we move towards the sea level.
