How to find the partial pressure of a gas.

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    The total pressure of a mixture of gases can be defined as the sum of the pressures of each individual gas: Ptotal=P1+P2+… +Pn. + P n . The partial pressure of an individual gas is equal to the total pressure multiplied by the mole fraction of that gas.

    Using diving terms, partial pressure is calculated as: partial pressure = (total absolute pressure) × (volume fraction of gas component) For the component gas "i": pi = P × F.
