1
Daltons Law P total = P 1 + P 2 + P 3 +...

2
Daltons Law The pressure of each component is called the partial pressure of that component.

3
Daltons Law For example: If we have a flask containing nitrogen gas, whose partial pressure is.78 atm and oxygen gas, whose partial pressure is.20 atm, the total pressure in the flask is P total = P N2 + P O2 P total =.78 +.20 =.98 atm

4
Daltons Law Another way to think about this is through the use of the mole fraction. The mole fraction is rather like calculating the percent of each component.

5
Daltons Law The mole fraction is written as follows a N2 = moles N 2 total moles total moles This is basically the percent (by number) of some element.

6
Daltons Law We can rearrange Daltons Law to use the mole fraction as follows: P x = a x (P total ) Or specifically: P N2 = a N2 (P total )

7
Daltons Law For example: ordinary air contains 78.084% nitrogen. We might be interested in knowing what the partial pressure of nitrogen is in the atmosphere.

8
Daltons Law The mole fraction of N 2 must be.78084, so P N2 =.78084(P total ) If the atmospheric pressure is 640 torr, P N2 =.78084(640) = 500 torr
