Question

Air contains 78.08% nitrogen, 20.095% oxygen, and 0.93% argon. a sample of air occupies 8 l at 273 k and applies a pressure of 2.45 atm to its container. the sample of air is heated to 550 k, at which time it takes up 11.8 l. what is the partial pressure of nitrogen after the air has been heated

the partial pressure of nitrogen after the air has been heated is 2.61atm

Explanation:

Using combined gas law which is the combination of Boyle’s Law and Charles’ Law, and it gives The relationship between pressure, volume, and absolute temperature

PV/T= K

P1₁V₁/T₁=P₂V2₂/T₂

P₂=final pressure= ?

P₁= initial pressure=2.45 atm

.T₁= initial temperature= 273k

T₂= final temperature= 550 K,

We can make P₂ subject of the formula then we have

P₂=P₁V₁T₂/T₁T₂

=( 2.45×8×550)/(273×11.8)

P2=3.35atm

Now we can calculate the partial pressure of N₂

N₂= 3.35×(78.08/10)

=2.61atm

Therefore, the partial pressure of nitrogen after the air has been heated is 2.61atm
