Explanation:
Could you provide more context, please? In isolation, "mc.a" is hard to nail down. However, for what it's worth: In the International System (SI), pressure is usually measured in newtons per square meter (N/m2) or pascals (Pa), and sometimes megapascals (MPa) or millipascals (mPa). Common units of pressure measurement include the atmosphere (atm), torr (torr), and conventional millimeter of mercury (mmHg). Mechanical pressure measurements often specify whether the pressure is gauge (g) or absolute (a), as in "psia" ("pressure per square inch, absolute") and "psig" (pressure per square inch, gauge"). -- Fortunately, a short Web search has turned up several promising avenues, i.e.: www.powermag.com/editorial/pgentic.html (Power magazine, which invites queries);

deltacooling@worldnet.att.net (a manufacturer of cooling towers);

The Burger Companies: www.coolingtower.com/bconsul.html (whose founder, Bob Burger, is the author of Cooling Tower Technology: Maintenance, Upgrading, & Rebuilding), and many of whose technical articles are available at no charge at 703-893-4935; and

www.mriresearch.org/ae/ct.html (whose site includes the names of two individuals you may want to contact:
Mr. Frank Pendleton, Supervisor, Cooling Tower Testing Group:
fpendleton@mriresearch.org

Ms. Jackie Layson, Cooling Tower Test Coordinator: jlayson@mriresearch.org

Finally, there's the Midwest Research Institute in Kansas City, Missouri:
phone: (816) 753-7600; fax: (816) 531-0315

Hope these help!
