pound/square inch
inch of mercury

The above form works if you are measuring differential pressure, such as the difference in psi between two points. It also gives the correct answer for absolute pressure, assuming you are measuring psia, which is the pressure relative to absolute zero vacuum.

If you are measuring relative to vacuum and want to resolve the pressure relative to the atmosphere, then you should use the form below.

pound/square inch (relative to atmosphere)
inch of mercury (relative to vacuum)

›› Definition: Pound/square inch

The pound per square inch or, more accurately, pound-force per square inch (symbol: psi or lbf/in or lbf/in) is a unit of pressure or of stress based on avoirdupois units. It is the pressure resulting from a force of one pound-force applied to an area of one square inch.

›› Definition: Inch of mercury

Inches of mercury or inHg is a non-SI unit for pressure. It is still widely used for barometric pressure in weather reports and aviation in the United States, but is considered somewhat outdated elsewhere.

It is defined as the pressure exerted by a column of mercury of 1 inch in height at 32 F (0 C) at the standard acceleration of gravity.

1 inHg = 3,386.389 pascals at 0 C.

Aircraft operating at higher altitudes (above 18,000 feet) set their barometric altimeters to a standard pressure of 29.92 inHg or 1,013.2 hPa (1 hPa = 1 mbar) regardless of the actual sea level pressure, with inches of mercury used in the U.S. and Canada. The resulting altimeter readings are known as flight levels.

Piston engine aircraft with constant-speed propellers also use inHg to measure manifold pressure, which is indicative of engine power produced.
