1. Answer: The partial pressure of is 0.35 atm.

Explanation:

Given: Total pressure = 0.98 atm

Partial pressure of = 0.48 atm

Partial pressure of Ar = 0.15 atm

Partial pressure of = ?

Total pressure is the sum of partial pressure of each component present in a mixture of gases.

Hence, partial pressure of is calculated as follows.

Total pressure =

Substitute the values into above formula as follows.

Thus, we can conclude that the partial pressure of is 0.35 atm.
