    A manometer consists of a U-shaped tube containing a liquid. One side is connected to the apparatus and the other is open to the atmosphere. The pressure inside the apparatus is then determined from the difference in heights of the liquid. Suppose the liquid is water, the external pressure is 770 Torr, and the open side is 10.0 cm lower than the side connected to the apparatus. What is the pressure in the apparatus? (The density of water at 25°C is 0.99707 g cm−3.
