What kind of a barometer?

I guess tube suggests mercury barometer, but without this information question can't be answered.

Which already is a hint.

How does the mercury barometer work?

Please note: you have to show your attempts at solving the question to receive help. This is a forum policy, described in forum rules.

Now that it is clear it is a homework type question, I am moving it to appropriate forum.
