The human body has an average temperature of 98°F. Assume that the vapor pressure of the blood in the veins behaves like that of pure water. Find the minimum atmospheric pressure which is necessary to prevent the blood from boiling. Use figure of the text for the vapor pressures.
Minimum atmospheric pressure necessary to prevent blood from boiling is 50mm of Hg.
Average temperature of human body=98
Now above 36.7, the human blood will start boiling. So, the minimum atmospheric pressure to prevent boiling of human blood will the pressure corresponding to this temperature.
So, from figure pressure corresponding to 36.7 temperature on y-axis is 50mm of Hg which shown by yellow line in the figure.

The condition of air in a closed room is described as follows. Temperature 25°C, relative humidity = 60%, pressure = 104 kPa. If all the water vapor is removed from the room without changing the temperature, what will be the new pressure? The saturation vapor pressure at 25°C = 3.2 kPa.HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2

Two glass bulbs of equal volume are connected by a narrow tube and are filled with a gas at 0°C at a pressure of 76 cm of mercury. One of the bulbs is then placed in melting ice and the other is placed in a water bath maintained at 62°C. What is the new value of the pressure inside the bulbs? The volume of the connecting tube is negligible.HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2

An ideal gas is kept in a long cylindrical vessel fitted with a frictionless piston of cross-sectional area 10 cm2 and weight 1 kg. The length of the gas column in the vessel is 20 cm. The atmospheric pressure is 100 kPa. The vessel is now taken into a spaceship revolving round the earth as a satellite. The air pressure in the spaceship is maintained at 100 kPa. Find the length of the gas column in the cylinder.HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2
Figure shows a large closed cylindrical tank containing water. Initially the air trapped above the water surface has a height h0 and pressure 2p0 where p0 is the atmospheric pressure. There is a hole in the wall of the tank at a depth h1 below the top from which water comes out. A long vertical tube is connected as shown.
(a) Find the height h2 of the water in the long tube above the top initially.
(b) Find the speed with which water comes out of the hole.
(c) Find the height of the water in the long tube above the top when the water stops coming out of the hole.

An ideal gas is kept in a long cylindrical vessel fitted with a frictionless piston of cross-sectional area 10 cm2 and weight 1 kg (figure). The vessel itself is kept in a big chamber containing air at atmospheric pressure 100 kPa. The length of the gas column is 20 cm. If the chamber is now completely evacuated by an exhaust pump, what will be the length of the gas column? Assume the temperature to remain constant throughout the process.
