A cyclopropane-oxygen mixture is used as an anesthetic. If the partial pressure of cyclopropane in the mixture is 334 mmHg and the partial pressure of the oxygen is 1.02 atm, what is the total pressure of the mixture in torr?

P t = P a + P b + P c +
so that being said....
P total = P C3H6 + P O2
= 330 mm Hg + 760 mm Hg
= 1090 mm Hg
From there on i think you can figure it out. Its a fun problem. My chem teacher gave one like it to our class....

I am completely lost on partial pressure. Please work it out for me so i can see the step by step. THANKS!
