What happens when we bring a mercury barometer to the moon?

  • Physics -

    Since gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of that on earth, the mercury column would be 6 times higher for the same air pressure.
    However, the atmosphere on the moon is about 10^13 time rarer than that on earth, the height of the mercury column is practically nil on the moon.
