Definitions for "Dalton's Law"
Keywords:  exert, gases, mixture, occupy, partial
states that the sum of the partial pressures of each gas in a mixture is equal to the total pressure of the mixture.
Dalton's law of partial pressure. The total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the pressures that each gas would exert if it were alone. For example, if dry oxygen gas at 713 torr is saturated with water vapor at 25 torr, the pressure of the wet gas is 738 torr.
Vapor pressure created in a container by a mixture of gases is equal to sum of individual vapor pressures of the gases conĀ­tained in mixture.
(chemistry) law stating that when two elements can combine to form more than one compound the amounts of one of them that combines with a fixed amount of the other will exhibit a simple multiple relation
