Furthermore, does a barometer need to be outside?
Hang the barometer in a location that works for you. It makes no difference whether the barometer is hung on an inside or an outside wall. The pressure will be the same both indoors and outdoors .
Similarly, how do you transport a barometer? The best advice we can give is to just tilt the barometer slowly and gently to 45 degrees and let the top of the tube fill with mercury, then transport the barometer at that angle. Be sure to wrap the barometer in a good, stout plastic bag to contain any possible mercury spills, and cushion it well.
Keeping this in consideration, can you fix a barometer?
Check the adjusting or transporting screw at the base of the barometer . If it is screwed too tightly the adjusting screw will prevent the mercury from falling when pressure falls, and only works when pressure increases. Remove the complete glasswork of a broken tube.
Where is a barometer placed?
