ind the partial pressure of oxygen in a sealed vessel that has a total pressure of 2.6 atm and also contains carbon dioxide at 1.2 atm and helium at 0.10 atm.

  • chemistry -

    The partial pressures add to give the total pressure.
    2.6 = x + 1.2 + 0.1

    Solve for x, the oxygen partial pressure.
