determine the atmospheric pressure at a location where the barometric reading is 750 mm/hg. take the density of mercury to be 13,600 kg/m^3

Answer:

Barometer read the atmospheric pressure.
In this case it shows 750mm of mercury (hg)
So, the atmospheric pressure is

P= hdensityg
P= 0.75 m * 13600 kg/m^3 * 9.81 m/sec^2
P= 100062 Pa
