Convert 29.8 atm into torr
I did this 29.8(1/760) and got 22648 but its not going online as correct
Don't you go back and check for answers to your posts? I answered you below and showed you what you're doing wrong and how to avoid that error in the future.
Sorry, my post repeated by accident when i refresh my page
Btw, I did it the way you said and I still come up with the same conversion of 29.8 * (760/1)= 22648
And 29.8 atm IS equal to 22,648 torr. You may be trying to key in too many significant figures. Is that possible?
22,648 torr to three s.f. is 2.26E4 torr. I suspect that is the problem.
By the way, on your first post I noticed that you showed 29.8 *(1/760) = 22,648 but you multiplied instead of dividing. You would not have obtained the right answer but the number is about 0.03 and not 22,648. You punched the wrong button on your calculator.
