Would you want to learn a little about "What is 'altimeter'"? Yes? Let's just get this game started!

And the quick answer is…

An instrument which determines the altitude of an object with respect to a fixed level, such as sea level; there are two common types: the aneroid altimeter and the radio altimeter.

An altimeter is a device that measures a location's distance above sea level.

Most altimeter are barometric, meaning they measure altitude by calculating the location's air pressure.

Air pressure decreases as altitude increases.

Do you know what makes people curious? Here are a few questions and answers:


How does an altimeter measure air pressure...

The instrument senses this by taking the ambient air pressure from the static port. That air is plumbed through the back of the panel and into the back case of the altimeter. Inside the altimeter is a sealed disc called an aneroid, or bellows.
