The pressure in Denver, Colorado (5280-ft elevation), averages about 24.9 in. Hg. Convert this pressure to:
(b) millimeters of mercury
(c) pounds per square inch
Here, we are going to convert the given pressure to different units.
Given pressure = 24.9 in. Hg
Converting inches to milimeters, we get,
1 inch = 25.4 mm
Therefore, 24.9 inches = 25.4 x 24.9 mm
= 632.46 mm
Thus, 24.9 in Hg = 632.46 millimeters of mercury.
