The intriguing concept of "partial pressure" refers to the combinatorics physical process during which the individual gases in a multiple-gas mixture contributes its own density and kinetic energy and hence its own 'partial pressure' portion of the total gas pressure system.

Analyzing partial pressures helps scientists understand how molecules interact to create system reactivity.

Partial pressure equations are taught in most American schools as part of a regular physics course.
