I currently teach senior and international Baccalaureate chemistry at a school located in Ottawa. Recently I made a monometer (using just water) for measuring quantitatively the volume of evolved gas in some conventional chemistry activities. I wonder if I can replace the water with around 200 g of mercury (by considering all possible safety measurements) to enhance my capability to measure larger volume of evolved gas in my IB chemistry experiments. Your advice is highly appreciated.
