# Problem: How is the partial pressure exerted by N2 gas affected when some O2 is introduced into a container if the temperature and volume remain constant? How is the total pressure affected?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the partial pressure of a gas (PGas) in a mixture is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{gas}}\mathbf{=}{\mathbf{\chi }}_{\mathbf{gas}}{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{total}}}$

where χGas = mole fraction of the gas and Ptotal = total pressure of the gas mixture
