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 P$_{total}$ = 5.00 $\mathrm{kPa}$ + 4.56 $\mathrm{kPa}$ + 3.02 $\mathrm{kPa}$ + 1.20 $\mathrm{kPa}$ = 13.78 $\mathrm{kPa}$
