In physics, a gas is one of the three major states of matter (the others being liquid and solid). A gas is a fluid that does not support tensile stress, meaning that it is compressible. The word gas is a neologism first used by the early 17th-century Flemish chemist J.B. van Helmont, based on the Greek word ("chaos"), the simplest of all the elemental forms of matter.

In physics, thermodynamics is the science of energy and its transformations. The three laws of thermodynamics state that energy can be exchanged between physical systems as heat and work; that the total energy of a system can be calculated by adding up all forms of energy in the system; that energy spontaneously flows from being localized to becoming dispersed, spread out, or uniform; and that the entropy of an isolated system not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium.

So this question is, I call it version problem. So you have to convert 606 into a t. M. And also PK It is a unit conversion. So you know that one a t m a c equals to one a 1.3 to 5 p k equals to 7 60 All right. So how do you convert this guy from M am Mercury into a T M? And then PK is pretty simple. You have to multiply by the conversion. I meant that. So when you have to convert into a t. M, you have to understand that 1 80 m is equals to 7 60 m and mercury A and the MM mercury from here and here will cross it out. So the only unit laugh as a t m. So then you successfully convert into a tm. So the answer after you do the calculation would be 0.797 All right, so when you have to convert into PK is pretty simple. Ray 66. No, that's not 66 is think zeros A's multiply by at the bottom Still 7 60 because you have to cancel. You know the Mm. Mercury and what you want is the peak. A. So you will put Peter A at the top. And the picture is one a one 0.3 to 5. And at the bottom. Mm, Mercury's. So you have to always put the same unit at the bottom so you can cross it up. So I forgot to read the unit here. I just write zero, so you can't cross it out to you in it. This is a unit. All right, You cross it out. So only unit math is to peek a. So after you do the calculations 606 multi clap at that number and divide it by 7 60 You will get 80 plenty. So these
