Step 1

Part (a)

First convert the given gauge pressure in absolute pressure in atm as:

Step 2

Since the mole fraction of water in the vapor phase is assumed to be negligible, use the formula for henry’s law to calculate the mole fraction of CO2 and H2O  in the liquid phase as:

Step 3

Part (b)

The vapor pressure of water at 25⸰C is given as 23.756 mmHg. The pa...
