Solution: Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydrocarbons with all H atoms replaced by F atoms, have very weak cohesive forces. One interesting consequence of this property is that a live mouse can breathe while submerged in O2-saturated PFCs.(b) According to one source, kH for O2 in water at 25°C is 756.7 L·atm/mol. What is the solubility of O2 in water at 25°C in ppm?
