## Questions

### To a Tank Containing at and at , We Add an Anonymous Quantity of up Until the Total Pressure Inside the Tank is . What is S Partial Pressure?

**Answer**:

Dalton՚s law states that the addition of does not upset the partial pressures of the and already existing in the tank. The partial pressure of and remain at , respectively, and their total is 3.0 atm. The partial pressure of the added must be if the new pressure is , Therefore, when the final pressure is , the partial pressures are

### A Mixture of Hydrogen Gas and Oxygen Gas Exerts a Total Pressure of on the Walls of Its Container. If the Partial Pressure of Hydrogen is , Find the Mole Fraction of Oxygen in the Mixture

**Answer**:

- Given,
- Applying Dalton՚s law formula,

- Therefore,
- Now, the mole fraction of oxygen,

Therefore, the mole fraction of oxygen in the mixture is

### At a Temperature of , of Gas a Kept under Pressure of and of Gas B Kept under Pressure of is Transferred into an Empty Container. Calculate the Total Pressure Inside the Container and the Partial Pressures of Gas a and Gas B (Assume That a and B Are Ideal Gases)

Answer:

- From the ideal gas equation,
- Number of moles of gas A

Number of moles of gas B

- Total number of moles in the gaseous mixture
- Total pressure inside the 10 L container

- Therefore, the total pressure inside the 10-litre container is .
- Mole fraction of gas A Mole fraction of gas B
- Therefore, partial pressure of gas A Therefore, partial pressure of gas B
- Thus, the partial pressures of gases A and B in the container are both equal to .
