# Question #effc6

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

We can use the equation

where

Essentially, the partial pressure of a gas is simply the mole fraction of the gas multiplied by the total pressure.

We're given the *percentage* of each gas in the mixture, and the mole fraction is just that percentage divided by

Let's plug in the mole fraction of each gaseous component into the first equation to find the partial pressure of each gas:

We can check our answers by summing the partial pressure of each gas, and seeing if it adds to the total pressure:
