hydrostatic equation The term 'hydrostatic equation' as it applies to the area of carbon dioxide can be defined as ' In the vector equation of motion, the form assumed by the vertical component when all Coriolis effect, earth-curvature, frictional, and vertical-acceleration terms are considered negligible compared with those involving the vertical pressure force and the force of gravity. The error in applying the hydrostatic equation to the atmosphere for cyclonic-scale motions is less than 0.01%. In extreme situations, the strong vertical accelerations in thunderstorms and mountain waves can be 1% of gravity'.
