# Total Pressure Calculator

Do you know how to calculate the total pressure of a system? Total pressure is the sum of all partial pressures in a given system. It helps in understanding the overall pressure exerted by different gases or fluids. Enter P1, P2 P3 P4 and P5 into the calculator to find total pressure.

### How to Use the Calculator

**Input Fields**

**Enter P1 (atm):**Input the first partial pressure. For example,`2.5`

.**Enter P2 (atm):**Input the second partial pressure. For instance,`1.5`

.**Enter P3 (atm):**Input the third partial pressure. For example,`0.5`

.**Enter P4 (atm):**Input the fourth partial pressure. For instance,`1.0`

.**Enter P5 (atm):**Input the fifth partial pressure. For example,`0.8`

.

**Steps to Calculate**

**Fill in the values**for P1, P2, P3, P4, and P5 into the calculator.**Click Calculate:**The calculator will display the total pressure.

### Formula

The formula to calculate total pressure is:

${P}_{\text{total}}=\sum {P}_{\text{partials}}$

**Variables**

Variable | Description |
---|---|

${P}_{\text{total}}$ | Total Pressure (atm) |

${P}_{\text{partials}}$ | Partial Pressures (atm) |

## Calculation Examples

### Example 1

**P1:**2.5 atm**P2:**1.5 atm**P3:**0.5 atm**P4:**1.0 atm**P5:**0.8 atm

**Step-by-Step Calculation:**

**Sum of Partial Pressures:**

$2.5+1.5+0.5+1.0+0.8=6.3$

**Result:** Total Pressure = 6.3 atm

### Example 2

**P1:**3.0 atm**P2:**2.0 atm**P3:**1.0 atm**P4:**1.5 atm**P5:**0.5 atm

**Calculation:**

**Sum of Partial Pressures:**

$3.0+2.0+1.0+1.5+0.5=8.0$

**Result:** Total Pressure = 8.0 atm
