How do you calculate partial pressure?

i dont think we have to know how to calculate it yet but i believe the total pressure of a system is the sum of all the partial pressures

Yeah, as Tanmay said above, I don't think that we have to know how to calculate it yet.

To calculate partial pressure, find the molar fraction of each gas. Then, multiply the molar fraction by the total pressure in the container.

Thank you! How do figure out the molar fractions though?
