Atmospheric pressure to gas pressure in the apparatus

  1. Nov 28, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If the atmospheric pressure is 745 mm Hg, what is the gas pressure in the apparatus in atm?
    (Hint: the gas pressure is not equal to atmospheric pressure. Which is greater Pgas or Patm?)
    Be careful with your units, 10.2 cm is equal to 102 mm



    2. Relevant equations
    P=H+G


    3. The attempt at a solution
    P=102+0.98
    P=102.98

    We don't know the apparatus, we don't know what you add to what, we don't know the units. There is no way we can help or comment on the problem itself.
