8. Blood pressure is usually given as the ratio of the maximum pressure (systolic pressure) to the minimum pressure (diastolic pressure). For example, a typical value for this ratio for a human would be 120/70, where the pressure is in mm Hg. What would these pressures be in Pascals? p = ρgh p 120mmHg = (13600)(9.807)(0.12) = 16005 PaG p 70mmHg = (13600)(9.807)(0.07) = 9334 PaG 9. A tank is constructed of a series of cylinders having diameters of 0.30, 0.25, and 0.15 m as shown. The tanks contains oil, water and glycerin and a mercury manometer is attached to the bottom as illustrated. Calculate the manometer reading h.
