distance from the burner to the object. Note that the distances suggested in the
manual are measured from the hottest part of the flame to the object. Figure 8: The Bunsen Burner
8. Barometric Readings and Unit Conversions There are barometers placed in each laboratory room that give the barometric pressure
readings in inches of Hg. This measurement must be converted to mmHg. The
conversion factor is 1.00 inch = 25.4 mm. 9. p...
