Problem

A closed-end manometer was attached to a vessel containing argon. The difference in the mercury levels in the two arms of the manometer was 12.2 cm. Atmospheric pressure was 783 mm Hg. The pressure of the argon in the container was __________ mm Hg.

a. 122

b. 661

c. 771

d. 795

e. 882

Solution

We have to determine the pressure (mm Hg) of argon gas in a container which is connected to a closed-end manometer.

Here is an illustration of what the container connected to the manometer would look like:
