Total pressure = 10 atm

Explanation:

The excersise can help to understant the concept of mole fraction

Mole fraction is defined as:

moles of gas / Total moles = pressure of that gas / Total pressure

Both can be summed.

Sum of moles of each gas in the mixture = Total moles

Sum of pressures of each gas in the mixture = Total pressure

Those, are laws for gases.

Total moles: 3 mol of gas A + 4 moles of gas B + 5 moles of C

= 12 total moles

Pressure of A is 2.5 atm.

We replace data at the mole fraction relation

moles of A / total moles = Pressure of A  / Total pressure

3 moles / 12 moles = 2.5 atm / Total pressure

Total pressure = 2.5 atm / (3mol/12mol)

Total pressure = 10 atm
