Dalton’s Law of Pressure :1

Today I learned about Dalton’s Law. Dalton’s law of partial pressures states that, at constant volume and temperature, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases. The contribution each gas in a mixture makes to the total pressure is called the partial pressure exerted by that gas. In a mixture of gases, the total pressure is the sum of the partial pressures of the gases. Dalton’s law holds true because each component gas exerts its own pressure independent of the pressure exerted by the other gases.”
