The pressure on top of Mt. Everest averages about 235 mmHg. Convert this pressure to each indicated unit.
a . torr
b . psi
c . in Hg
d . atm
Solution 26E Step 1: Part (a) Given data: q = -0.655 kJ = -655 J w = 382 J By plugging values in the equation of first law of thermodynamics we can determine the state of process, = (- 655 J) + 382 J = -273 J The obtained value is negative and also the given q value is negative representing the heat is transferred from system to surrounding hence the system is exothermic by nature.
