PROBLEM 74P

A gas mixture contains each gas at the indicated partial pressure.

CO2

422 mm Hg

Ar

102 mm Hg

O2

165 mm Hg

H2

52 mm Hg

What is the total pressure of the mixture?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 74P

The partial pressure of helium is 185 Torr.

This problem involves Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures.

For your problem, we can write this as

Ptotal=PCO₂+PAr+PO₂+PHe

745 Torr = 135 Torr + 234 Torr + 191 Torr + PHe = 560 Torr + PHe

PHe = 745 Torr – 560 Torr = 185 Torr
