The total pressure exerted by a number of non-reacting gases in a mixture is equal to the sum of partial pressures of the gases in the mixture. This is known as

2. Dalton's law
3. Charles' law
4. Graham's law

Correct Answer - Option 2 : Dalton's law

The correct answer is Dalton's law.

CONCEPT:

• Boyle's law states that at a constant temperature, the volume of a given mass of gas is inversely proportional to its pressure.
• P1V1 = P2V2
• Graham’s law of diffusion states that at a constant temperature and pressure, the rate of diffusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its density.
• $\frac{r_{A}}{r_{B}}=\sqrt{\frac{d_{A}}{d_{B}}}$ or $\frac{r_{A}}{r_{B}}=\sqrt{\frac{M_{B}}{M_{A}}}$
•  Where rA and rB are rates of diffusions of A and B, dA and dB are densities and MA and MB are molecular masses of A and B respectively​
• Charles law: This law states that at constant pressure, the volume of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature.
• $\frac{V1}{T1}=\frac{V2}{T2}$

EXPLANATION:

• Dalton's law of partial pressures states that The total pressure exerted by a number of non-reacting gases in a mixture is equal to the sum of partial pressures of the gases in the mixture.
• In a mixture, the pressure exerted by individual gas is called partial pressure.
• ptotal = p1+p2+p3+..... (at constant T and V), where ptotal is the total pressure exerted by the mixture of gases and p1, p2, p3 are the partial pressures of  gases.
