## Homework Statement

A gas bubble with a volume of 0.10 cm^3 is formed at the bottom of a 10.0 cm deep container of mercury. If the temperature is 27C at the bottom of the container and 37C at the top of the container, what is the volume of the bubble just beneath the surface of the mercury? assume that the surface is at atmospheric pressure.

## Homework Equations

P1V1/T1=P2V2/T2

P=Po+pgh

## The Attempt at a Solution

P2=Po+pgh

P2= 1.01x10^5Pa + (13.6x10^3kg/m3)(9.81m/s)(1.0x10^-3m)

P2= 101130Pa

P1V1/T1=P2V2/T2 > V2=P1V1T2/T1P2

V2=(1.01x10^5Pa)(1.0X10^-3 m^3)(300K)/(310K)(101130Pa)

V2=9.66x10^-4 m^3

The answer in the back differs with mine and I have tried to redo the problem many times.
