A 1.2-liter tank at a temperature of 27°C contains a mixture of 1.5 moles of oxygen, 1.2 moles of nitrogen, and 1.6 moles of hydrogen. What is the total pressure of the mixture inside the tank?
Dalton's law of partial pressures states that in a gaseous mixture, the pressure exerted by a component is the same as it would exert if it alone occupied the container. The total pressure os the sum of the individual partial pressures.
So, there are
This is quite a high pressure; of course, as you know
