🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Tucci & Matchacheep's class at HARVARD.
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?
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:
χGas = mole fraction of the gas
Ptotal = total pressure of the gas mixture
