Problem 78P

PROBLEM 78P

The oxygen gas emitted from an aquatic plant during photosynthesis is collected over water at 25 °C and a total pressure of 753 torr. What is the partial pressure of the oxygen gas?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 78P

Given:

Total partial pressure = 746 torr

Temperature = 25oC

Solution:

Since the oxygen is being collected over water, P(total) = P(O2) + P(H2O).

To find P(H2O), look up the vapor pressure of water at the given temperature (25 oC).

Vapor pressure of water at 25 degrees Celsius- 23.8 mm Hg.

P(total) = P(O2) + P(H2O)

746 = P(O2) + 23.8

P(O2) = 722.2

The partial pressure of oxygen is therefore 722.2  torr
