Dalton's Law

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Dalton’s law states that the total pressure of a gas mixture is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the individual gas components of the mixture.

Dalton's Law formula

\(\large{ P_{total} = P_1 + P_2 + P_3 +...P_n  }\)

Where:

\(\large{ P_{total}  }\) = the total pressure of a gas mixture.

\(\large{ P_1 P_2 P_3 ...P_n  }\) = the partial pressures of the individual gas components of the mixture.
