At sea level we are under 15.8 pounds of pressure per square inch of our body. This is the equivalent of a 16 pound bowling ball at every inch of our body. Describe why we are not overcome by the pressure of the atmosphere? What experiment in our course relates to this concept?

I'm not sure on this question. My gues is that the air inside our bodies so kind of balances out the pressure outside so we are not overcome by it.

I think it is 14.7 lbs per square inch at sea level and not 15.8 but I also think your guess is a good one.
