Q3. The cylindrical tank with hemispherical ends shown in Fig. P2.35 contains a volatile liquid and its vapor. The liquid density is \( 800 \mathrm{~kg} / \mathrm{m}^{3} \), and its vapor density is negligible. The pressure in the vapor is \( 120 \mathrm{kPa} \) (abs), and the atmospheric pressure is \( 101 \mathrm{kPa}(\mathrm{abs}) \). Determine: (a) the gage pressure reading on the pressure gage; and (b) the height, \( h \), of the mercury manometer.

Solution Given data Liquid density ?=800 kg
