the concentration also referred to as the soluble bility of a dissolved gas can be determined from its pennies law constant and partial pressure. Now, one essay, Henry's law constant. That's the variable K. Sub H. And it represents the song ability of a gas at a fixed temperature in a particular solvent in malaria. T. Which remember use the variable capital. And also remember we've discussed this before, where concentration polarity are synonymous with one another. Usually professors will interchange them. We can say concentration or polarity. They mean the same thing with this idea of Henry's law constant. Comes Henry's law formula where s gas, which equals the Saudi ability of a gas in polarity equals Henry's constant, which is K. H. And here it's in units of polarity overpressure. So our normal type of pressure is atmospheres. But remember there's a possibility of tours or millimeters of mercury as well. So always be on the lookout for the units that you'll see for Henry's law constant. Usually you'll see it in polarities over atmospheres, but there can be times before. You might see it in polarities over tours or polarities over millimeters of mercury. If it makes you feel more comfortable, just convert those precious units all two atmospheres and use this version of Henry's law constant now. And that's times P gas P gas is the partial pressure of the gas in atmospheres. And again, units are always important. The units here for partial pressure and atmospheres, because we're using these units for Henry's Law constant polarity over atmospheres.

Calculate this eligibility of carbon dioxide gas, which is CO2 when it's Henry lost constant is 8.20 times 10 to the two polarities per atmosphere at a pressure of 3.29 atmospheres. All right, so we need to find solid ability of our gas. So that's s gas, which is co two equals Henry's constant times the pressure of that gas. So we're gonna plug in 8-0 times 10 to the two polarities over atmospheres Times 3.29 Atmospheres. Again, you see that units will cancel out and what do we have at the end polarity? So this would come out to be 2.70 times to the three moller. So this would be the concentration of carbon dioxide for this particular example question.

So now we take a look at Henry's law at least in terms of the 2.4, we're gonna say the two point format. Henry's Law formula illustrates how changes in pressure. Yeah, can affect gas solid ability. Now we're gonna say this formula, this version is used when dealing with two pressures and with two psy abilities for giving gas. Here, we're gonna say with this formula, the units from Saudi ability can be in polarity or they can be in other units, there are in mass per volume. So Henry's Law formula, the two point form is sly ability one, which is your initial so liability over your initial pressure P one equals side ability to so your final side ability Divided by a final pressure p. two. So again we use this version when we're dealing with two side abilities or to pressures for any given gas.

at a pressure of 2.88 atmospheres. The sustainability of declawing methane which is CH two cl two is 20.384 mg per liter. If the cell viability decreases 2.2-5 mg per liter. What is the new pressure? Alright so here they're giving us one pressure but they're asking for a new pressure. So since this is the first pressure that's given this is p. one And since this is the second pressure that's talked about this is p. two Connected to P one. Is this solid ability Which we're gonna say is s. one And connected to the new pressure we need to find is this side ability which we call S. two. So now we're just gonna solve so we're gonna say here that S one over P. One equals S to overpay to. So then we're gonna plug in the numbers that we know. So this is .384, Divided by equals sorry billy 0.225 mg per liter, Divided by P two. Which we don't know you're going to cross multiply these two And cross multiply these two. Okay, so when we do that, what we're gonna see is we're going to have .384 mg/l Times P two equals. So when I multiply those two together has been .648 milligrams over Leaders Times atmospheres, Divide both sides now by .384 mg/l. Yeah, So these units cancel out and we'll have P two equal two atmospheres. So here P two equals 1. atmospheres as my final answer.
