### mole fraction

Is the partial pressure the product of the mole fraction and the total pressure?

Yes, because as we see in Kc vs. Kp, concentration and pressure work about the same way. Just like how moles make up a certain fraction of total moles, partial pressure make up a certain fraction of total pressure.

Yes, you multiply the mole fraction with the total pressure to get the partial pressure.

### Re: mole fraction

I understand the posts before this but what exactly is the definition of partial pressure? Just the fraction that a certain gas takes up? I am making it more complicated than it is?
