A manometer is used for the high pressures.

Manometer is needed for measuring large gauge pressures. It is basically the modified form of the piezometric tube.

Manometer can be use to measure both gauge and vacuum pressure.

You are right @Pavan.

But Manometer used to measure high pressure but vacuum pressure is lower than atmospheric pressure !

Then how the answer can be correct here!

Yes, right @Pavan.

Barometer is used for measuring vaccume pressure.

For vacuum pressure piezometre is used.

Please explain if a manometer is used for high pressure than how it can be used for vacuum pressure?

Manometer is used to measure high pressure of liq, vaccum pressures, pressure in pipes and channels. And differential manometer is used to measure diff of prssures bw two points in a pipe.

Piezometer is simplest form of mano meter nd used for measuring moderate pressure of liq.
