Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures

  1. Aug 17, 2005 #1
    Hello ,

    If someone could help me out with this problem with I got myself into i will be very thankfull.Dalton says that If there r three gases in a cylinder of 10 dm^3
    each containing a gas at the same temperature.Let there partial pressure be 400 torr,500torr,100 torr. Then when alll these three gases r transferred to another cylinder with the same 10 dm^3 volume then The pressure will be the sum of the three ie.1000torr. But will not the temperature increase if pressure increases so considerably. Please do tell me if i am not considring anything worth in this system.
