    Did you find a perfect answer to your "charging a capacitor" problem first?

    Hi there,

    A U-tube manometer is used to measure gas pressure inside an environment. The environment connected to one side of the manometer will push the liquid down, forcing the other side to lift. From the height difference between the two sides, you can measure the pressure compared to atmospheric pressure (on that particuliar moment).

    What is the context of your questoin? Is it for schoolwork? Are you supposed to turn in a write-up of how it works? Did you try searching about it at wikipedia.org?
