**Definitions:**

**Atmosphere** (abbreviation: **atm**): is a unit of standard pressure, equal to 101325 Pa, or 1.01325 bar.

**Millimeter Of Mercury** (abbreviations: **mm Hg, or mmHg**): is a manometric unit of pressure, equal to 133.322387415 pascals. It is the extra pressure generated by a column of mercury of one millimeter high.

## How to Convert Atmospheres to Millimeters Of Mercury

*Example: How many Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 84.88 Atmospheres?*

As;

1 Atmospheres = 759.769 Millimeters of Mercury

84.88 Atmospheres = Y Millimeters of Mercury

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 84.88 times 759.769 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 84.88 * 759.769 / 1 = 64489.19272 Millimeters of Mercury

Answer is: 64489.19272 Millimeters of Mercury are equivalent to 84.88 Atmospheres.
