The law states that the solubility of an ideal gas in a liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas over the liquid.
Mathematically, Pαx The units are correct. We rounded to one significant figure to match the number in the pressure. A 0.5-L bottle of cola has about 2 g (0.05 mol) of dissolved CO_{2}.
Question: O_{2} is bubbled through water at 293 K. Assuming that O_{2} exerts a partial pressure of 0.98 bar. Calculate the solubility of O_{2} in gL^{-1}. The value of Henry law constant (k_{H}) for O_{2} is 34.84 k bar. Options: (a) 0.05 gL^{-1} (b) 0.08 gL^{-1} (c) 0.07 gL^{-1} (d) 0.01 gL^{-1} Answer: (a) Solution:
