When a container is filled with 3.00 moles of #H_2#, 2.00 moles of #O_2#, and 1.00 mole of #N_2#, the pressure in thecontainer is 768 kPa. What is the partial pressure of #O_2#?
Partial Pressure of
Dalton's law of partial pressures covers two concepts;
- Mole fraction
- Partial pressure
Let's talk about Mole Fraction first.
You have a mixture of
Next, the equation of the partial pressure of a gas can be written as;
Since now we know the mole fraction of
The total pressure can be calculated using this;
