In the example where Dr. Lavelle demonstrated the combustion of glucose, how can we assume that the pressure is constant?

since the reaction is happening out in the open (open system), we can assume that the only pressure acting upon it is atmospheric pressure, which is constant (1 atm).

The reactions only pressure was atmospheric which was constant. This is because it was an open reaction.
