Unformatted text preview: And so on for all components. Therefore, the total pressure P t will be equal to: All components will share the same temperature, T , and volume V , therefore, the total pressure P t will be: Since the sum of the number of moles of each component gas equals the total number of moles of gas molecules in the sample: At constant temperature and volume, the total pressure of a gas sample is determined by the total number of moles of gas present, whether this represents a single substance, or a mixture Example A gaseous mixture made from 10 g of oxygen and 5 g of methane is placed in a 10 L vessel at 25C. What is the partial pressure of each gas, and what is the total pressure in the vessel? (10 g O 2 )(1 mol/32 g) = 0.313 mol O 2 (10 g CH 4 )(1 mol/16 g) = 0.616 mol CH 4 V=10 L T=(273+25K)=298K P t = P O2 + P CH4 = 0.702 atm + 1.403 atm = 2.105 atm...
