In a gaseous mixture, how does #P_"Total"# relate to the individual partial pressures, i.e. #P_1#, #P_2#...#P_n# exerted by each gaseous component?
I am not quite sure that you have grasped the issue.........
In a gaseous mixture, the partial pressure,
But if we use the Ideal Gas Equation:
And the partial pressure of a component gas is thus simply,
If I have missed the direction of your question, please qualify it.
