Dalton's Law

Gibbs'-Dalton's law of partial pressure

The total pressure of a mixture of gases is made up by the sum of the partial pressures of the components in the mixture - also known from Gibbs'-Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures.

  • the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures of the individual gases

The total pressure in a mixture of gases can be expressed as:

p = Σpi                                              (1)

where

p = pressure of mixture    (Pa, psi)

pi = partial pressure of individual gas   (Pa, psi)
