Dalton's law of partial pressures - definition

The Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures states that the total Pressure exerted by the mixture of gases is equal to the sum of Partial Pressure of each individual Gas present. 

Each gas is assumed to be an ideal gas.

Applications of Dalton's partial pressures - definition

  • In the determination of pressure of a dry gas
  • In the calculation of partial pressures
