It is known that,

p =\( \dfrac{m}{M}\dfrac{RT}{V}\)

For methane (CH_{4}),

\( p_{CH_{ 4 }}\)

= \( \dfrac{ 3.2 }{ 16 } × \dfrac{8.314 \; \times \;300 }{9 \; \times \; 10^{-3 }}\)

\( [Since \;9dm^3 = 9 \; \times \; 10^{-3}m^3 \;27°C\)

\( = 300 K]\)

= 5.543 × \( 10^{ 4 }\) Pa

For carbon dioxide (CO_{2}),

\( p_{CO_{ 2 }}\)

=\( \dfrac{ 4.4 }{ 44 }× \dfrac{8.314 \; \times \;300 }{9 \; \times \; 10^{-3}}\)

= \( 2.771 × 10^{4} Pa\)

Total pressure exerted by the mixture can be calculated as:

\(p= p_{CH_{ 4 }} + p_{CO_{ 2 }}\)

= \( (5.543 × 10^{ 4 }+ 2.771 × 10^{4}) Pa\)

= \( 8.314 × 10^{ 4 }\) Pa

Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year agoExplain the physical significance of Van der Waals parameters.

Critical temperature for carbon dioxide and methane are 31.1°C and – 81.9°C respectively. Which of these has stronger intermolecular forces and why?

In terms of Charles’ law explain why -273°C is the lowest possible temperature.

What would be the SI units for the quantity \(\dfrac{pV^2 T^2}{n}\)

A mixture of dihydrogen and dioxygen at one bar pressure contains 20% by weight of dihydrogen. Calculate the partial pressure of dihydrogen.
