In a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen gas 80.0 percent of the total gas pressure is exerted by the nitrogen. If the total pressure is 2.0 ATM what pressure does the oxygen exert?

How do you convert 32 percent nitrogen into 30 percent nitrogen?
Why a mixture of 80 percent Helium and 20 percent Oxygen is used by sea divers?
The stated mixture is used primarily to eliminate the nitrogen present in ordinary air. Nitrogen is almost as soluble in blood as oxygen, and if a deep sea diver breathes air, the dissolved nitrogen is likely to form small bubbles in the blood stream that can cause severe pain ("the bends") and possibly even death from blocked blood vessels after the diver returns to normal atmospheric pressure. Helium hardly dissolves in blood at all, even at fairly high pressure, and what does dissolve is harmlessly expelled after the diver returns to normal atmospheric pressure.

Which Planet has an atmosphere that is mostly nitrogen?
Asked in Elements and Compounds
Why is nitrogen 78 percent of the earth's atmosphere?
Because if it wasn't the atmosphere would be more flammible. If there was no nitrogen or other unfammable gas in the air a single spark would blow up the planet. Also nitrogen doubles as being necissary for most forms of life. Nitrogen also helps sea-level's pressure be exactly that, sea-level's pressure.

What is mole percent?
Mole percent, or molar percent of a substance is the ratio of the moles of a substance in a mixture to the moles of the mixture. It represents the number of moles of a substance in a mixture as a percentage of the the total number of moles in the mixture. Mole % = (mol substance in a mixture) / (mol mixture) * 100

Does humidity increase atmospheric pressure?
No, the more water vapor the air contains, the lighter it is. When water vapor enters the atmosphere, it pushes out an equal volume of dry air. A cubic meter of dry air is 99 percent nitrogen and oxygen. A cubic meter of humid air with 2 percent water vapor is only 97 percent nitrogen and oxygen. Water vapor is lighter than the nitrogen and oxygen it pushed out. Therefore, humid air weighs less than dry air and exerts less pressure.
