Convert 3.6 times 10 to the second atm to torr.
I don't understand how to get atm to torr????
1 atm = 760 torr.
Is the answer 270,000 torr?
Are you in to significant figures. I suspect so since the question is 3.6 x 10^2 atm. If so, then
3.6 x 10^2 atm x (760 torr/1 atm)= 273,600 torr which is 2.7 x 10^5 torr when rounded to two significant figures.
