We’re being asked to assign each of the given labels to the flask that it correctly describes.

Recall that the** partial pressure of a gas (P _{gas})** in a mixture is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{gas}}\mathbf{=}{\mathbf{\chi}}_{\mathbf{gas}}{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{total}}}$

χ_{gas} = mole fraction of the gas

P_{total} = total pressure of the gas mixture.

The **mole fraction** of the gas is then given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\chi}}_{\mathbf{gas}}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{moles}\mathbf{}\mathbf{gas}}{\mathbf{total}\mathbf{}\mathbf{moles}}}$

Assign each of the given labels to the flask that it correctly describes.
