Dalton's Law

Chemistry Level 2

In chemistry and physics, Dalton's law (also called Dalton's law of partial pressures) states that the total pressure exerted by the mixture of non-reactive gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of individual gases. This empirical law was observed by John Dalton in \(1801\) and is related to the ideal gas laws. If \(1\) L of oxygen with a pressure of \(3\) atm and \(2\) L of nitrogen with a pressure of \(6\) atm are mixed in a container with a volume of \(3\) L as shown above, then what is the pressure of the gas mixture? (Assume that the temperature is constant.)
