Why does the size of the cross-sectional area of a mercury barometer not affect the height of the enclosed mercury column?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

We have relation Pressure in fluid(P) = hg Where, h is height , dis density, g is acceleration due to gravity Cross sectional area is not affected the height of enclosed mercury column because the height of the in mercury barometer is determined by Force exerted by area i.e pressure not by force and fluid pressure depends on density and depth ,pressure...
