Four gases were combined in a gas cylinder with these partial pressures: 3.5 atm N2, 2.8 atm O2, 0.25 atm Ar, and 0.15 atm He.What is the mole fraction of N2 in the mixture?

1. P V = n R T

V, T and R are the same for each
so
n, the number of mols is proportional to P

total pressure = 3.5 + 2.8 + .25 + .15 = 6.7
so for example mol fraction of N2 = 3.5/6.7 = .522
