Problem: Recently, I was given laughing gas (N 2O, MW = 44.013 g/mol) during some dental work. They did this by applying a tube over my nose and flowing N2O into the tube, increasing the partial pressure of N2O to 0.4 atm. If the concentration of N2O in my blood after the dental procedure was 1.25 x 10-3 M, calculate the Henry's law constant for N2O.
