The pressure given should be converted into the units of atmosphere. Concept Introduction: Pressure = Force Area Pressure can be expressed in different units. But it is normally reported in mm Hg ( millimeters of mercury ) General unit conversions: 1 atm = 760 mm Hg 1 pascal = 1 newton / meter 2 1 atm = 760 mm Hg = 101 .325 kilopascals = 1 .01325 bar 1 bar = 1×10 5 pascal

Solutions

Chapter 10, Problem 1PS

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The pressure given should be converted into the units of atmosphere.

Concept Introduction:

  Pressure=ForceArea

Pressure can be expressed in different units. But it is normally reported in mmHg(millimetersofmercury)

General unit conversions:

  1atm=760mmHg1pascal=1newton/meter21atm=760mmHg=101.325kilopascals=1.01325bar1bar=1×105pascal

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 1PS

  440mmHg=0.578atm

Explanation of Solution

The given pressure are in the units of atmosphere

Given the value of pressure as 440mmHg

Conversion into atm:

  1atm=760mmHg440mmHg×1atm760mmHg=0.578atm

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The pressure given should be converted into the units of bars.

Concept Introduction:

  Pressure=ForceArea

Pressure can be expressed in different units. But it is normally reported in mmHg(millimetersofmercury)

General unit conversions:

  1atm=760mmHg1pascal=1newton/meter21atm=760mmHg=101.325kilopascals=1.01325bar1bar=1×105pascal

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 1PS

  440mmHg=0.586bar

Explanation of Solution

The given pressure are in the units of bar

Given the value of pressure as 440mmHg

Conversion into bar:

  440mmHg×1.013bar760mmHg=0.586bar

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The pressure given should be converted into the units of kilopascals.

Concept Introduction:

  Pressure=ForceArea

Pressure can be expressed in different units. But it is normally reported in mmHg(millimetersofmercury)

General unit conversions:

  1atm=760mmHg1pascal=1newton/meter21atm=760mmHg=101.325kilopascals=1.01325bar1bar=1×105pascal

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 1PS

  440mmHg=58.6kPa

Explanation of Solution

The given pressure are in the units of kilopascals.

Given the value of pressure as 440mmHg

Conversion into kilopascals:

  440mmHg×101.3kPa760mmHg=58.6kPa
