PROBLEM 31P

The North American record for highest recorded barometric pressure is 31.85 in. Hg, set in 1989 in Northway, Alaska. Convert this pressure to:

(a) millimeters of mercury

(b) atmospheres

(c) torr

(d) kilopascals

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 31P

Here, we are going to convert the given pressure to different units.

Step 1:

Given pressure = 31.85 in. Hg

Converting inches to milimeters, we get,

                        1 inch = 25.4 mm

         Therefore, 31.85 inches = 25.4 x 31.85 mm

                                  = 809(approx.) mm

Thus, 31.85 in Hg = 809 millimeters of mercury.

Step 2:

Now, 1 atm = 760 mm Hg

Therefore, 809 mm Hg = 809 / 760 atm

                              = 1.064 atm

Thus, 31.85 in Hg =  1.064 atmospheres.
