Henry's law
The generalization that the partial pressureThat portion of the total pressure of a mixture of gases contributed by the presence of one of the component gases. of a gasA state of matter in which a substance occupies the full volume of its container and changes shape to match the shape of the container. In a gas the distance between particles is much greater than the diameters of the particles themselves; hence the distances between particles can change as necessary so that the matter uniformly occupies its container. in equilibriumA state in which no net change is occurring, that is, in which the concentrations of reactants and products remain constant; chemical equilibrium is characterized by forward and reverse reactions occurring at the same rate. with a solutionA mixture of one or more substances dissolved in a solvent to give a homogeneous mixture. is proportional to the concentrationA measure of the ratio of the quantity of a substance to the quantity of solvent, solution, or ore. Also, the process of making something more concentrated. of the dissolved gas in the solution.
