1.

Barometers modified to measure the height above sea level are called

  sphygmomanometers

  altimeters

  hydrometers

  manometers

  Half-n-half Clue
 

2.

pressure - manometer
One arm of a glass U-tube is open to the atmosphere, whereas the other vertical arm is connected to a gas supply. The difference in levels of mercury (density = 13.6 g cm-3) between the vertical arms of the U-tube manometer is h = 5 cm. If the atmospheric pressure is 760 mm Hg and the gravitational acceleration is 9.8 m s-2, then the pressure of the gas is about

  1.102 × 104dynes cm-2

  1.080 × 106dynes cm-2

  6.664 × 104dynes cm-2

  1.020 × 107dynes cm-2

  Half-n-half Clue
