1277 mm Hg

2.38 times 10^5 Pa

127 psi

455 torr

Solution 23P Step 1: (a) 1277 mm Hg Pressure of gas = 1277 mm Hg It is known that 1 atm = 760 mm Hg Conversion factor used = 1 atm/ 760 mm Hg We have multiply the given pressure of the gas in mmHg with the conversion factor, to calculate the pressure in the atmosphere. Hence, 1277 mm Hg× 1 atm = 1.680 atm 760mm Hg Therefore the pressure of the gas in atmosphere is 1.680atm
