# 798 torr is equal to how many kPa?

Dec 16, 2015

I recall the conversions:

$\text{760 torr = 1 atm}$ (1)

$\text{1 atm = 101.325 kPa}$ (2)

So:

$\text{798" cancel"torr" xx cancel"1 atm"/("760" cancel"torr") xx "101.325 kPa"/cancel"1 atm}$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{= 106.391 kPa}}$

which makes sense when you compare to $\text{760 torr}$; by connecting conversion factor (1) and (2), $\text{760 torr = 101.325 kPa}$. Thus, you can also say that:

$\text{798 torr"/"760 torr" = (x " kPa")/"101.325 kPa}$

("798" cancel"torr")/("760" cancel"torr") xx "101.325 kPa" = "106.391 kPa"
