I assume you want to find the volume of the gas cylinder

The pressure in the cylinder can be found from rho*g*(h1-h2)=P(atm)-P(gas)

where rho=specific grav. of mercury 13.6 gr/cm^3

g=9.81 m/s^2

P(atm)=101325 Pa

h1,h2 are known

Knowing the gas pressure we can calculate the volume from Gas Law

PV=nRT where n= amount of gas in moles, T=temperature in K deg., R=8.3 J/(mol K) all assume known

V=nRT/P(gas) P(gas) is calculated above
