How tall must a water-filled manometer be to measure blood pressures as high as 300 mm Hg?
Step 1 of 4:
A manometer is a device used to measure the pressure. The device is filled with mercury or water based on our expectations. We are given the blood pressure value using mercury manometer. We can also use a water filled manometer to get the same result. We are going to find the height of such water-filled manometer.
The blood pressure measured using mercury manometer
The height of the mercury column or
