Textbook Problem

# At the summit of Mount Everest (altitude = 8848 m), atmospheric pressure is 0.29 atm (or 29% of the pressure at sea level). Convert the pressure into its corresponding value in units of mm Hg, bars, and kilopascals.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The pressure given should be converted into the units of mm Hg, bars and kilopascals.

Concept Introduction:

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

Pressure=ForceArea

General unit conversions:

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

Explanation

The given pressure in the units of mm Hg, bar and kilopascals.

Given the value of pressure as 0.29â€‰atm

Conversion into mm Hg:
