Question

What will be the pressure exerted by a mixture of 3.2 g of methane and 4.4 g of carbon dioxide contained in a 9 dm3 flask at 27C ?


Solution

It is known that,
p=mM=RTV
For methane (CH4),
PCH4=3.216×8.314×3009×103[Since 9 dm3=9×103m327=300 K]=5.543×104Pa
For carbon dioxide (CO2),
pCO2=4.444×8.314×3009×103=2.771×104PA
Total pressure exerted by the mixture can be obtained as:
p=PCH4+PCO2=(5.543×104+2.771×104)Pa=8.314×104 Pa
Hence, the total pressure exerted by the mixture is 8.314×104Pa.
