# Suppose two gasses in a container have a total pressure of 1.20 atm. What is the pressure of Gas B if the partial pressure of Gas is 0.75 atm?

Solution

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$_{total}$ = P$_{Gas A}$ + P$_{Gas B}$

Given P$_{total}$ = 1.20 $\mathrm{atm}$ and P$_{Gas A}$ = 0.75 $\mathrm{atm}$, therefore P$_{Gas B}$ = 1.20 - 0.75 = 0.45 $\mathrm{atm}$
