You will explore the relationship between partial pressure and the total pressure of gas mixtures.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures accounts for each individual gas pressure present when a mixture of gases is present. Within a mixture of gases are different atoms. These atoms have varying masses, so their kinetic energy also is different. With different energy, each atom applies a different pressure. Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures states that the sum of individual pressures equals the total gas pressure of a sample. It can be written as
