Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
a) 200g = 200cc. volume, so height of water column = (200/4.70) = 42.55cm.(density water = 1g/cc)
b) 200g. of mercury will be displaced. Its volume = (200/13.6) = 14.7cc.
Height mercury rises = (14.7/10.2) = 1.441cm.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
