Given information


Step-by-step explanation

Step 1.

(a) The partial pressure exerted by the gas molecules present in the mixture of gases depends upon the average velocity of the gas molecules. The gas having greater average velocity exerts more partial pressure. Since the average velocity of xenon gas is lower as compared to the nitrogen gas because the molecular mass of xenon is higher than that of nitrogen. Therefore, xenon gas exerts less partial pressure as compared to nitrogen gas.
