Solution: Three 1.0-L flasks, maintained at 308 K, are connected to each other with stopcocks. Initially the stopcocks are closed. One of the flasks contains 1.3 atm of N2, the second 3.6 g of H2O, and the third, 0.40 g of ethanol, C2H6O. The vapor pressure of H2O at 308 K is 42 mmHg and that of ethanol is 102 mmHg. The stopcocks are then opened and the contents mix freely.What is the pressure?
