Solution

Pressure at point A is 76 cm of mercury. Therefore, mercury will rise to full length of the tube, i.e., 1 m, to maintain equal pressure at points A and B. Inside the satellite, geffective = 0, so the pressure due to height of the mercury column will be zero.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
