6- 36 6.51 a. – SO 2 is hazardous and should not be released directly into the atmosphere, especially if the analyzer is inside. From Henry’s law, the partial pressure of SO 2 increases with the mole fraction of SO 2 in the liquid, which increases with time. If the water were never replaced, the gas leaving the bubbler would contain 1000 ppm SO 2 (nothing would be absorbed), and the mole fraction of SO 2 in the liquid would have the value corresponding to 1000 ppm SO 2 in the gas phase. b.
