Problem 19P

The basic barometer can be used to measure the height of a building. If the barometric readings at the top and at the bottom of a building are 730 and 755 mmHg, respectively, determine the height of the building. Assume an average air density of 1.18 \(\mathrm{kg} / \mathrm{m}^{3}\).

                     

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 4

The barometer is a  scientific  device which is used to find out the pressure at a point.  The barometer   reading   at the top of the building is 730 mmHg and at the  bottom is  755 mmHg.

       

The atmospheric pressure at the top

                   

The density of mercury
