09/13/11 Aerosol & Particulate Research Laboratory 6 Partial Pressure : the pressure that a gas (or vapor) in a mixture of gases would exert if it were to occupy the entire volume occupied by the mixture T A A P y P = ) 100 ( ) ( × = = S RH T P P S v A Supersaturation: S > 1 ( RH > 100%) Saturation Ratio (or relative humidity for water) Q: After a rain at dusk, the temperature starts to drop. How do P V and P A change correspondingly? How about S ? Can you 1 mole of O 2 @ 1 atm 4 moles of N 2 Q: How much is P O2 ?
