Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 53 Mole Fraction the fraction of the total pressure that a single gas contributes is equal to the fraction of the total number of moles that a single gas contributes total A total A n n P P the ratio of the moles of a single component to the total number of moles in the mixture is called the mole fraction, for gases, = volume % / 100% total A A n n the partial pressure of a gas is equal to the mole fraction of that gas times the total pressure total A A P P

Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 54 Mountain Climbing & Partial Pressure our bodies are adapted to breathe O 2 at a partial pressure of 0.21 atm Sherpa, people native to the Himalaya mountains, are adapted to the much lower partial pressure of oxygen in their air partial pressures of O 2 lower than 0.1 atm will lead to hypoxia unconsciousness or death climbers of Mt Everest carry O 2 in cylinders to prevent hypoxia on top of Mt Everest, P air = 0.311 atm, so P O2 = 0.065 atm

Tro, Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 55 Deep Sea Divers & Partial Pressure its also possible to have too much O 2 , a condition called oxygen toxicity P O2 > 1.4 atm oxygen toxicity can lead to muscle spasms, tunnel vision, and convulsions its also possible to have too much N 2 , a condition called nitrogen narcosis also known as Rapture of the Deep when diving deep, the pressure of the air divers breathe increases – so the partial pressure of the oxygen increases at a depth of 55 m the partial pressure of O 2 is 1.4 atm divers that go below 50 m use a mixture of He and O 2 called heliox that contains a lower percentage of O 2 than air

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
