Differentiate between atmospheric pressure and liquid pressure

Atmospheric Pressure:

Air exerts pressure in all directions. The pressure exerted by air is called the air pressure, which is the thrust exerted by air per unit area.

The envelope of air surrounding the earth is called the atmosphere. Air pressure exerted by the atmosphere is also called atmospheric pressure

Liquid Pressure:

All the liquids exert pressure on the base or bottom and walls of their container. All the liquids have weight. When we pour the liquid into a vessel, then the weight of liquid pushes down on the base of the vessel producing pressure.
