🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ratliff's class at USF.

Solution: Mercury is a neurotoxic metal with a reasonable high vapor pressure, at least for a metal. The vapor pressure at 25°C is 0.0017 mmHg. But what about the vapor pressure of mercury in a factory where the temperature is 32°C? Will the vapor pressure of mercury be higher or lower in the factory? The enthalpy of vaporization of mercury is 59.11 kJ/mol.
