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 Ne?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to calculate the partial pressure of neon gas (Ne) when a mixture of He and Ne with equal number of both gases has the total pressure 6.0 atm.


Partial pressure of a component in a gaseous mixture is calculated by this formula:

Pa = Xa·Pt

Where,

Pa = partial pressure of component

Xa = mole fraction of component

Pt = total pressure of mixture
