a. If the open-tube manometer in Exercise 22 contains a nonvolatile silicone oil (density = 1.30 g/cm3) instead of mercury (density = 13.6 g/ cm3), what are the pressures in the flask as shown in parts a and b in torr, atmospheres, and pascals?
b. What advantage would there be in using a less dense fluid than mercury in a manometer used to measure relatively small differences in pressure?
