The partial pressures of gases involved in the given reaction have to be determined. Concept Introduction : Partial pressure : The pressure of each gas in a mixture of gases is the partial pressure. Dalton’s law of partial pressure : The total pressure of gases in a mixture of gases is the sum of the pressure of each gas in the mixture Mole fraction : Quantity which defines the number of moles of a substance in a mixture divided by the total number of moles of all substances present. x a = n a n total p a = x a × P total Partial pressure of a gas in the mixture of gases is the product of mole fraction of the gas and the total pressure.

Solutions

Chapter 10.5, Problem 1RC
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The partial pressures of gases involved in the given reaction have to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

  • Partial pressure: The pressure of each gas in a mixture of gases is the partial pressure.
  • Dalton’s law of partial pressure: The total pressure of gases in a mixture of gases is the sum of the pressure of each gas in the mixture
  • Mole fraction: Quantity which defines the number of moles of a substance in a mixture divided by the total number of moles of all substances present.

xa=nantotal

pa=xa×Ptotal

Partial pressure of a gas in the mixture of gases is the product of mole fraction of the gas and the total pressure.
