    p = density of water = 1g/mL = 1000kg/L

    1 atm = 101.3 kPa = 101.3kN/m^2

    Pressure = pgAh/A >(Ah is volume, pAh is mass, pgAh is force)

    Pressure = pgh

    h = pressure/(pg)

    h = (101.3*10^3)/(1000*9.81)

    h = 10.33 m

    h = 1033 cm

    760 mm mercury times 13.5 density of mercury

    10260 mm

    1026 cm (10.26 m)
