Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I suppose you can fill a manometer with carbon tet instead of of water or mercury and use it as a pressure gauge. It seems a nasty chemical for it though. I can only find an approximate specific gravity of 1.6, so vs a water column of same height, the pressure would be 1.6 x higher (a better figure would be desirable) or the column would be 1/1.6 the height.

35.0 psi x 6894.76 Pa/psi x 1 mm H2O/9.8 Pa x 1 cm/10 mm = 2462 cm H2O.
Since carbon tet has specific gravity of 1.6 that would be ~1539 cm (yes, over 15 m, quite a column)
