Q.5. Assuming the density of air to be 1.295 kg m - 3 , find the fall in barometric height in mm of Hg at a height of 107 m above the sea level. Take density of mercury = 13.6 × 10 3 kg m - 3 .

Dear student,
Decrease in the pressure of air =hρgThis decrease =decrease in the height of the mercuty levelhρg=Hρ'gH=hρρ'H=107×1.29513.6×103H=10mm of hg
