Step 1

Given,

Mass of O2 = 16 g

Mass of N2 = 21 g

Mass of He = 16 g

Temperature, T = 20.0°C = (20+273) K = 293 K

Volume, V = 25.0 L

Total moles of O2 , N2 and He can be calculated as:

Step 2

The total pressure can be calculated using the ideal gas equation as:

Step 3

The mole fraction He can ...
