A manometer, a tire gauge, and a sphygmomanometer are devices that are used to measure gauge pressure. A barometer measures absolute pressure.

Work Step by Step

A manometer is a device used to measure the difference between atmospheric pressure and gas pressure. Thus a manometer measures gauge pressure. A barometer is a device used in a home to measure absolute pressure. A tire gauge measures the pressure inside a tire so it measures gauge pressure. A sphygmomanometer is a device that is used to measure blood pressure so it measures gauge pressure.
