Torr; mm Hg. Compare with barometer and pressure. A unit of pressure, defined so that 760 Torr is exactly 1 atmosphere. A Torr is equivalent to 1 mm Hg on barometer readings taken at 0°C; at other temperatures, the conversion from mm Hg to Torr is approximately p(Torr) = p(mm Hg) Ã— (1 - 1.8Ã—10

^{-4}t), where t is in °C.

Unit of pressure equal to 1/760 of an atmosphere, used mainly in high-vacuum technology. One torr is equivalent to 133.322 pascals, and for practical purposes is the same as the millimetre of mercury. It is named after the Italian physicist Evangelista Torricelli

The torr (symbol: Torr) is a traditional unit of pressure, now defined as exactly {frac|760} of a standard atmosphere. Thus one torr is exactly {frac|{{val|101325}|760}} pascals (~133.3 Pa). Historically, one torr was intended to be the same as one `millimetre of mercury`. However, subsequent redefinitions of the two units made them slightly dif.....
