Problem 70HP

A barometer measures 760 mm Hg at street level and 735 mm Hg on top of a building. How tall is the building if we assume air density of 1.15 kg/m3?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 70 HP

Step 1 of 1

We have to find how tall is the building, if a barometer measures 760 mm Hg at street level and 735 mm Hg on top of a building.

A barometer measures the atmospheric pressure at the given altitude.

The difference in the pressure at the street level and top of a building is given by the expression,

where,

difference in the pressure at the

street level and top of a building

in mm Hg

density of air = 1.15 kg/m3

m/s2

height of the building in m

Solving for

Therefore, the height of the building is 295 m.
