Solution: You have two closed containers with ether. Each container has a total volume of 1L. One container is filled with 750 mL of liquid ether. The other container has 500 mL of liquid ether. How does the partial pressure of the ether in the gas phase above the liquid compare in the two containers?  A. It is the same in both containers. B. It is higher in the container with 750 mL. C. It is higher in the container with 500 mL.

Problem

You have two closed containers with ether. Each container has a total volume of 1L. One container is filled with 750 mL of liquid ether. The other container has 500 mL of liquid ether. How does the partial pressure of the ether in the gas phase above the liquid compare in the two containers? 

A. It is the same in both containers.

B. It is higher in the container with 750 mL.

C. It is higher in the container with 500 mL.
