calculation: mass of oxygen in water
« on: June 16, 2020, 05:07:26 AM »
I have mixed feelings about latest calculation task that I got:

20m3 of water was saturated with oxygen at a temperature of 8°C and a pressure of 1800 hPa. Calculate the mass of oxygen that will release when heated to 20°C and pressure changes to normal.

Can someone help me find good way to solve it, please? :)

What laws governing gases solubility do you know?

Henry's law. But I don't know how to use it so that is my problem

Are you sure it is a HS level problem?

Henry's law is OK, but it will give only part of the answer. As far as I am aware for the other part (T) you need solubility tables (or thermodynamic data that will allow to estimate the solubility change).
