Recall that the partial pressure of a gas (PGas) in a mixture is given by:
χGas = mole fraction of the gas
Ptotal = total pressure of the gas mixture
Consider the following samples of gases:
If the three samples are all at the same temperature, rank them with respect to partial pressure of helium (PHe).
