## Problem 10 - Variation of Pressure

**Problem**

A gage on the suction side of a pump shown vacuum of 254 mm of mercury. Compute (a) pressure head in meters of water; (b) pressure in kiloPascal; (c) absolute pressure in kiloPascal if barometer reads 736.6 mm of mercury.

## Problem 07 - Variation of Pressure

**Problem**
