# How to Convert Pressure Reading from Torr to Atmospheres

## What is the conversion factor between torr and atmospheres?

Given: 1 atm = 760 torr

## How would you convert a pressure reading of 565 torr to units of atmospheres?

## Conversion Factor and Calculation:

1 atm = 760 torr

To convert from torr to atm, you can use the conversion factor:

1 atm = 760 torr

Given pressure reading: 565 torr

Use the formula: Pressure in atmospheres = Pressure in torr ÷ 760

Therefore, the pressure reading of 565 torr in units of atmospheres is:

## Calculation:

565 torr ÷ 760 = 0.743 atm

**Therefore, the pressure reading of 565 torr is equivalent to 0.743 atmospheres.**
