Homework Statement


What is the solubility of an unknown gas in water at 1.0 atm if its solubility at 3.0 atm is 1.02M?

Homework Equations


Henry's law Sg = k*Pg

The Attempt at a Solution


Sg = 1.02M/3.0atm * 1.0 atm = .34 atm

I'm not sure if Pg, the partial pressure of the gas, is 1.0 atm or 3.0 atm.

Are the units correct?

Are the units correct?
.34 is in M instead of atm (I forgot to cancel out the atm).
