Physics: pressure of mixing gases

  1. Sep 24, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    96 grams of oxygen and 50 grams of hydrogen gas occupy separate, equal sections of 200 liter tank. The divide is removed and the gases are allowed to mix and react with each other. Temperature is kept constant at 120 degrees celsius
    2. Relevant equations

    b) find the pressure after the reaction ends

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I was able to get part A, which was finding the pressure in their seperate containers but am not sure how to do part b.

    How many miles of hydrogen, oxygen, and water are present in the tank after the reaction is complete?
