General Chemistry 2 - Exercise 3
The relative humidity in a green house at 35.0°C is 88.5%.
Calculate the vapor pressure of water vapor in the greenhouse (in Pa).
Data: vapor pressure of water at 35.0°C = 41.2 mmHg (1 mmHg = 1.33 x 10-1 kPa)
φ = x 100
PH2O = partial pressure of the water vapor in the greenhouse
P0H2O = equilibrium vapor pressure of water at the same temperature
P0H2O = 41.2 mmHg = 5.49 kPa
PH2O = = 4.86 kPa = 4860 Pa
