Applying Bernoullie's theorem, 


               ΔP=ρairgh


      or, ΔP=(760-735)mm of mercury=25mm of mercury=(25mm)*(density of mercury)*g=(25*10-3)*(13.6*103)g


                                                                                                                                                            where,  ρmercury=13.6*103kg/m3


                                                                                                                                25mm=25*10-3m


       Hence height of mountain


                                         h=25*13.6/1.2=283.34m
