The pressure exerted by a vapor in equilibrium with its corresponding liquid at a given temperature is called the equilibrium vapor pressure of the liquid. The vapor pressure of the liquid can be measured using the manometer. It is done by injecting a small amount of liquid in a closed flask that is connected to a manometer.
