Question

(b) The student collects the H2(g) produced by the reaction and measures its volume over water at 298 K after carefully
equalizing the water levels inside and outside the gas-collection tube, as shown in the diagram below. The volume is
measured to be 45.6 mL. The atmospheric pressure in the lab is measured as 765 torr, and the equilibrium vapor pressure
of water at 298 K is 24 torr,

The pressure of  H₂(g) = 741 torr

Explanation:

Given that:

The atmospheric pressure measured in the lab  = 765 torr

The vapor pressure of water = 24 torr

By applying Dalton’s Law of Partial Pressure :

Making The Pressure inside the tube due to the H₂(g) the subject of the formula :

we have:

= (765 -24) torr

= 741 torr
