PROBLEM 26P

Perform each conversion.

(a) 1 .06 atm to millimeters of mercury

(b) 95,422 Pa to millimeters of mercury

(c) 22.3 psi to torr

(d) 35.78 in. Hg to millimeters of mercury

Solution 26P

Here, we are going to convert the unit.

(a) 1 .06 atm to millimeters of mercury

1 atm = 760 mmHg

Conversion factor =

Thus, 1 .06 atm = 1 .06 atm x = 805.6 mm Hg

Therefore, 1.06 atm = 805.6 mm Hg

(b) 95,422 Pa to millimeters of mercury

1 mmHg = 133.322365 pa

Conversion factor =

Thus, 95,422 Pa = 95,422 Pa x = 715.725 mm Hg

Therefore, 95,422 Pa = 715.725 mm Hg

(c) 22.3 psi to torr

1 psi = 51.71484 torr

Conversion factor =

Thus 22.3 psi x = 1153.24 torr

Therefore, 22.3 psi = 1153.24 torr

(d) 35.78 in. Hg to millimeters of mercury

We know

1 inHg = 25.399904 mmHg

Conversion factor =

Thus, 35.78 in. Hg x = 908.808 mm Hg

Therefore, 35.78 in. Hg = 908.808 mm Hg
