A manometer reads the pressure of a gas in an enclosure as shown in figure (i). When a pump removes some of the gas, the manometer reads as in Figure (ii). The liquid used in the manometers is mercury and the atmospheric pressure is 76 cm of mercury.

(a) Give the absolute and gauge pressure of the gas in the enclosure for cases (i) and (ii) in units of cm of mercury.
(b) How would the levels change in case (i) if 13.6 cm of water (immiscible with mercury) are poured
into the right limb of the manometer ? (Ignore the small change in volume of the gas.)
