Formula to find vapor pressure is

ln (P1 / P2) = (Hvap / R) x [(1/T2) - (1/T1)]

Given.

P1 = 143 mmHg = 0.188 atm

P2 = ?

Hvap = 32.1 kj/mol = 32.1 * 10^3 j/mol 

R = 8.314 j/mol * k

T1 = 30 C + 273 = 303 k

T2 = 60 C + 273 = 333 k

ln (0.188 / P2) = (32.1 * 10^3/8.314) * [(1/333) - (1/303)]

ln (0.188/P2) = (3860.96) * [(0.0030 - 0.0033)]

ln (0.188/P2) = -1.158

e^ln (0.188/P2) = e^-1.158

0.188/P2 = 0.3141

P2 = 0.188/0.3141

P2 = 0.5985 atm

Therefore, the vapor pressure of carbon tetrachloride at 60 degrees celsius is 0.5985 atm.

vapour pressure of the carbon at 30 degree is given to be = 143.mmHg.

= (143/1000)meter of Hg' weight force /m^2

=(143/1000) (density of mecury)*g, where g is the acceleration due to gravity.

=0.143*13546*9.81N/m^2

=19002.3518 N/m^2  or 19002.31518 pascals is the  the pressure

Also by gas law:

P1/T1  = P2/T2. Therefore,

P2 = P1*(T2/T1) = P1*(273*15+60)/(273.15+30) = P1*333.15/303.15 Pascals.

=19002.3518*333.15/303.15 Pascals

=20882.84183 pascals
