Consider Fig. 14.10. Imagine you are talking to a friend who has not taken any science courses, and explain how the figure demonstrates the concept of vapor pressure and enables it to be measured

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

How the given figure 14.10 demonstrates the concept of vapor pressure and enables it to be measured must be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Vapor pressure is the pressure of the accumulated vapor at saturated condition.

Explanation

In the very left part of the figure it is clearly shown that there is vacuum and so no vapor pressure is expected. Accordingly, the mercury level is showing 215mm which is atmospheric pressure.

In the middle part there is water vapor above mercury level
