When we look at the changes and effects using Le Chatelier's Principle, is Partial Pressure different from Pressure? For example, if the Partial Pressure of one of the products increases, will there be an increase in the Partial Pressure of the reactants. On the other hand, if Pressure increases in a reaction, does the reaction just shift to the side with fewer moles?
Partial Pressure more specifically is talking about the pressure one gas exerts, while pressure talks about the overall pressure exerted by all the gases in the container, So the partial pressure of all the gases in a container can be added to find the overall pressure.
The partial pressure and total pressure are different things, but they are related. The partial pressure is the pressure of a specific gas while the total pressure is the sum of all the partial pressures.
