🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Satyamurti's class at University of Massachusetts Boston.
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.
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:
