Hi all, new here, so dont know if this is the right place. All the other places in the forum seemed like advanced stuff!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyway, i dont understand why when calculating the partial pressure of a gas in SVP conditions, you subtract 6.28kPa from the normal atomospheric pressure of 101.1kPa? Could someone explain the rationale of why thats done please?

If it helps, you can email me the answer to my email: blue.rascal [at] hotmail.com

Thank you all and Merry Xmas!
