A barometer is constructed using a liquid (density = 760 kg/m3). What would be the height of the liquid column, when a mercury barometer reads 76 cm?
(density of mercury = 13600 kg/m3)
(1) 0.76 m
(2) 1.36 m
(3) 13.6 m
(4) 136 m

Given,ρl=760 kg/m3ρHg=13600 kg/m3hHg=76cmSince barometer measures atmospheric pressure. So, in both cases, pressure will be the same.⇒ρL×g×hL=ρHg×g×hH⇒760×hL=13600×76/100 =>hL=13.6m
