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.

a) 100g = 100cc. volume, so height of water column = (200/4.70) = 21.28cm.(density water = 1g/cc)

b) 200g. of mercury will be displaced. Its volume = (200/13.6) = 7.35cc.

Height mercury rises = (14.7/10.2) = 0.721cm.
