### Theory:

1. The movement of air helps to rotate windmills for electricity generation.

Windmills

Moving air turns the blades of windmills to run mills and draw water from tube wells by running pumps.

2. Air is used to sail yachts, fly gliders, aeroplanes, parachutes, etc.

3. Plants and animals utilise air for breathing. Also, air helps birds, bats and insects to fly.

5. Air plays a vital role in the water cycle process, which gives us rain.

6. Air is used in the combustion of fuels like wood, coal, kerosene, LPG etc. It is also compressed to fill the tyres of vehicles like cycles, cars, etc.

7Ozone layer in the atmosphere prevents harmful radiations of the sun from reaching the earth’s surface.

8. Under some emergencies, patients with breathing difficulties use oxygen masks and cylinders for breathing.
