## Freon-12 (CF2C12) is commonly used as the refrigerant in central home air conditioners. The system is initially charged to a pressure of 4.8 atm. Express this pressure in each of the following units (1 atm = 14.7 psi).a. mm Hgb. torrc. Pad. psi

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The given pressure 4.8 atm of Freon-12 is to be converted to mm Hg, torr, Pa and psi units.

Concept Introduction:

Pressure of a substance can be stated in various units. The units of pressure are interconvertible. The relations between units of pressure are,

• Since the unit mm Hg and the unit torr is used interchangeably.

1atm = 760mmHg = 760torr

• 1 atm pressure is about 105 Pa. that is,

1atm = 101325Pa

• The 1 atm pressure in psi unit is,

1atm = 14.7psi

### Explanation of Solution

Relations forconversion between units,

1atm = 760mmHg

The given pressure is 4.8 atm
