Question

In one observation, the column in a mercury barometer has a measured height $h$ of $740.35 \mathrm{~mm}$. The temperature is $-5.0^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$, at which temperature the density of mercury $\rho$ is $1.3608 \times 10^4 \mathrm{~kg} / \mathrm{m}^3$. The free-fall acceleration $g$ at the site of the barometer is $9.7835 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}^2$. What is the atmospheric pressure at that site in pascals and in torr?
