A typical air sample in the lings contains oxygen at 100 mm Hg, nitrogen at 573 mm Hg, carbon dioxide at 40mm Hg and water at 47 mm Hg. What is the total pressure on the sample in mm Hg?

  • chemistry -

    Dalton's law: total pressure is the sum of the partial pressures.

  • chemistry -

    So do I have to do any conversions, say to moles or just take the sum of the values as is since the answer has to be in mm Hg?
