Unformatted text preview: Pressure was therefore measured in how many millimeters high the mercury was pushed. With that background information, our conversion should be rather simple: in-Hg → mm-Hg → atm. Here is the dimensional analysis: 29.0 in-Hg │2.54 cm-Hg│ 1000 mm-Hg │ 1atm = 0.970atm │1 in-Hg │ 100 cm-Hg │ 760 mm-Hg...
