Step 1

- Given, the total gas mixture of a cylinder contains 5% of CO2, 12% of O2 and remaining N2 have to find out.

The total pressure of the mixture is given = 146 atm.

So, we have to calculate the percentage of N2,

Therefore,

Step 2

Now calculate the partial pressures of the gas mixtures i.e., for 5% of CO2, 12% of O2 and remaining N2.

1) The partial pressure of CO2

Step 3

2) The partial pressure of O...
