Problem

An open-end manometer containing mercury is connected to a container of gas, as depicted in Sample Exercise 10.2 in the textbook. What is the pressure of the enclosed gas in torr in each of the following situations?

The mercury in the arm attached to the gas is 12 mm lower than in the one open to the atmosphere; atmospheric pressure is 0.96 atm .
