Problem

A gas mixture contains CO, Ar and H 2. What is the total pressure of the mixture, if the mole fraction of H2 is 0.350 and the pressure of H 2 is 0.480 atm?

Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the total pressure of a gas mixture containing CO, Ar, and H2


Recall that the partial pressure of a gas (PGas) in a mixture is given by:


Pgas=χgasPtotal


where: 

χGas = mole fraction of the gas

Ptotal = total pressure of the gas mixture
