The lecture Measurement of Gases by Jared Rovny is from the course Gas Phase.
The pressure of atmosphere at the top of Mount Everest is 30 kPa. What is the height that mercury rises in a barometer at the top of Mount Everest? Note: pressure at sea level is 1 atm = 100 kPa = 760 mm Hg
At the top of Mount Everest due to reduced atmospheric pressure, the height to which mercury rises in a mercury barometer is 228 mm. What would be the height of water in a water barometer at the top of Mount Everest? Note: The specific gravity of mercury is 13.6.
We are at a certain altitude above sea level with atmospheric pressure of R atm, 0 < R < 1. What would be the height that a fluid with specific gravity of S would rise in a barometer at this altitude? Note: specific gravity of mercury is 13.6 and 1 atm = 760 mm Hg
