Dalton's Law of Partial Pressure

A mixture of helium and neon gases is collected over water at 28.0 C and 745 mmHg. if the partial pressure of helium is 368 mmHg, what is the partial pressure of neon?

Solution Preview

Gases' pressures can be added up. which means that when we have 2 gases in a room, we can simply add up their pressures to know the total pressure (if they are in equal ...

Solution Summary

The solution applied Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures to solv efor the partial pressure of neon in a helium-neon mixture of gas over water when given helium's pressure and the temperature.
