Question

Find the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in a gas mixture with a total pressure of 30.4 kPa if the partial pressures of the other two gases in the mixture are 16.5 kPa and 3.7 kPa.

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

As per Dalton's law of partial pressures, total pressure is equal to summation of individual partial pressure.

Based on above statement, we can say that Ptotal_{total} = PCarbondioxide_{Carbon-dioxide} + Pgas1_{gas1} + Pgas2_{gas2}

Given Ptotal_{total} = 30.4 kPa\mathrm{kPa}, Pgas1_{gas1} = 16.5 kPa\mathrm{kPa} and Pgas2_{gas2} = 3.7 kPa\mathrm{kPa}, therefore PCarbondioxide_{Carbon-dioxide} = 30.4 - 16.5 - 3.7 = 10.2 kPa\mathrm{kPa}
