so there's a mixture of CO2, SO2, and H2O gases in a 21L tank. Pressure inside is 850Torr at 45*C. if SO2 concentration in mixture is 7.95x10^3 ppmv (where ppmv=[V component/V total mixture]x10^6), find its partial pressure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so i found the volume of SO2 to be 0.16695L using the ppmv (where V total mixture was 21L and V component/SO2 was what I solved for).

but i can't simply use P1V1=P2V2 (where 1=given condition, 2=SO2 conditions) because "n" isn't constant in both cases...

so how can I find the partial pressure of SO2?
