The pressure exerted by each gas (its partial pressure) is proportional to the percentage of that gas in the mixture. C. Henry’s Law -when a mixture of gases is in contact with a liquid, each gas will dissolve in the liquid in proportion to its partial pressure. In other words, the greater concentration of a gas in the gas phase, the more and the faster that gas will move into solution in the liquid. 1.
