# Problem: A gas mixture contains an equal number of moles of He and Ne. The total pressure of the mixture is 6.0 atm .What is the partial pressure of He?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the partial pressure of He.

Recall:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{x}}}{\mathbf{=}}\mathbf{\left(}\frac{{\mathbf{n}}_{\mathbf{x}}}{{\mathbf{n}}_{\mathbf{total}}}\mathbf{\right)}{{\mathbf{P}}}_{{\mathbf{T}}}}$
