Question

a pressurized tank for diving is filled with 4.0L gas
which constitutes of 50g of O2 and 150g of N2 . Calculate the
partial pressure for each gas and total gas pressure.

Answer #1

moles of O2 = 50 / 32 = 1.56

moles of N2 = 150 / 28 = 5.36

total moles = 5.36 + 1.56 = 6.92

mole fraction of O2 = moles of O2 / total moles = 1.56 / 6.92 = 0.225

mole fraction of N2 = 0.775

V = 4.0 L

T = 298 K

P V = n RT

P x 4 = 6.92 x 0.0821 x 298

P = 42.33 atm

**total pressure =42.33 atm**

partial pressure of O2 = mole fraction x total pressure

= 0.225 x 42.33

= 9.52 atm

**partial pressure of O2 =9.52 atm**

partial pressure of N2 = 0.775 x 42.33

**partial pressure of N2 = 32.80 atm**

A 9.0 L tank at 2.14 degrees C is filled with 5.18g of carbon
monoxide gas and 12.1g of boron trifluoride gas. You can assume
both gases behave as ideal gases under these conditions.
Calculate the mole fraction and partial pressure of each gas,
and the total pressure in the tank. Be sure your answers have the
correct number of significant digits.

Imagine that unknown gas in the storage tank is analyzed. A
11.25-g sample of the gas contains 1.93 g CO2, 3.54 g
O2 , and 5.78 g C4H10. Calculate
the partial pressures of each gas (in bar) in the storage tank if
the total pressure in the tank is 1.16 bar.
Pressure of CO2, O2, C4H10 ?

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is
initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.8x107 Pa and 32 oC.
The tank has a volume of 11.5 L. If the tank will continue to
provide air until it reaches a pressure of 1.2x106 Pa, how many
moles of gas will it provide to a diver diving in water at 10 oC?
Give your answer in moles to at least three significant figures.
Hint: There will...

A SCUBA tank, an air tank used for breathing under water, is
initially filled with gas at a pressure of 2.3x107 Pa
and 25 oC. The tank has a volume of 16.0 L. If the tank
will continue to provide air until it reaches a pressure of
2.5x106 Pa, how many moles of gas will it provide to a
diver diving in water at 6 oC? Give your answer in moles
to at least three significant figures. Hint: There will...

A gas mixture containing O2 N2 and He exerts a total pressure of
1256 torr. If the partial pressures are 555 torr for O2 and 143
torr for He, what is the partial pressure in atm of the nitrogen in
the mixture?

A 12-L oxygen tank is maintained at room temperature and is
filled (with O2) to an absolute pressure of 7.2 MPa. If a person
can survive on 32 g hr-1 of O2, how long could a person survive on
the oxygen in the tank? (show your steps of calculation)

A closed, rigid tank is filled with a gas modeled as an ideal
gas, initially at 80°C and a gage pressure of 300 kPa. The gas is
heated, and the gage pressure at the final state is 500 kPa. The
local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm.
Determine the final temperature, in °C.

A 18m3 tank is filled with helium gas at a pressure
of 1.12 X 104 KPa. How many balloons each 2.0L can be
inflated to a pressure of 1.2 X 102 KPa. Assuming that
the temperature remains constant and that the tank cannot be
emptied below 1 bar of pressure?

Consider a cylindrical gas cylinder that is initially filled
with N2 gas at a pressure of 5atm. The tank height is 1.0m, and its
internal diamter is 18cm. At t=0, a valve is opened and the gas is
pumped out at a constant mass flow rate of 4.5g/min. Select and
state an appropriate control value, and then derive an expression
for the pressure in the tank as a function of time remains at
constant temperature (25C). How long will it...
