# What is the henry’s law constant for co2 at 20∘c?

## What is the Henry’s law constant for co2 CO 2 at 20 C C?

Henry’s law constant (kh) for CO2 in water at 20°C is 0.037 mol/(L atm).

## What is the C in Henry’s Law?

‘P’ denotes the partial pressure of the gas in the atmosphere above the liquid. ‘C’ denotes the concentration of the dissolved gas. ‘kH’ is the Henry’s law constant of the gas.

## What is the Henry’s law constant for o2?

For water in equilibrium with the atmosphere, the concentration is governed by Henry’s Law, and KH for O2 is 769.23. We can calculate the concentration of O2(aq) to be 0.00027 M. Water below the air/water interface is not necessarily in equilibrium with the air and can have even less oxygen than this small value.

## What is the concentration of co2 at 1 atm and 25 ∘ C?

Carbon dioxide solubility in water at 25°C and 1 atm is: 3,5·10⁻² mol/L. Difference is: 0,038 mol/L – 0,035 mol/L = 0,003 mol/L. V(carbon dioxide) = 1 L. n(carbon dioxide) = V · c.

## What is Henry’s law and its application?

Mention some of its important applications. Answer: Henry’s law states that the solubility of a gas in a liquid is directly proportional to the pressure of the gas. … (iii) To avoid bends (painful effects during the decompression of scuba divers), oxygen diluted with less soluble helium gas is used by the sea divers.

## What does a high Henry’s law constant mean?

A high Henry’s law constant implies low solubility of the gas. This can be understood from the equation for Henry’s law.

## What is the value of Henry’s law constant?

At 25 °C, the log Henry’s law constant (log KH) for 1,2-dimethylbenzene (C8H10) is 0.71 l atm mol−1 and the log octanol–water coefficient (log Kow) is 3.12.

## What are the limitations of Henry’s Law?

Limitations of Henry’s law – definition

• The pressure should be low and the temperature should be high i.e the gas should behave like an ideal gas.
• The gas should not undergo compound formation with the solvent or association or dissociation in the solvent.

## How much co2 does water dissolve?

At room temperature, the solubility of carbon dioxide is about 90 cm3 of CO2 per 100 ml water (cl/cg = 0.8). Any water-soluble gas becomes more soluble as the temperature decreases, due to the thermodynamics of the reaction: GAS (l)  GAS (g).
