The total pressure of a container that has NH_3(g) exerting a pressure of 346 torr, N_2(g) exerting a pressure of 225 torr, and H_2O (g) exerting a pressure of 55 torr?

Answer:

This is simply the sum of the individual partial pressures...........

Explanation:

And thus.......................

${P}_{\text{total"=P_"ammonia"+P_"dinitrogen"+P_"water vapour}}$

$= \left(346 + 225 + 55\right)$ $m m \cdot H g$ $= 626 \cdot \text{Torr}$.

How many atmospheres is this?

Can you think of a way to estimate the temperature at which this experiment was performed? I can think of one.
