A mixture of gases


A mixture of gases $\mathrm{O}_{2}, \mathrm{H}_{2}$ and $\mathrm{CO}$ are taken in a closed vessel containing charcoal. The graph that represents the correct behaviour of pressure with time is:

Correct Option: , 2


Initially, adsorption of gases at the surface of charcoal occurs rapidly which results in a sudden decrease in pressure. As the number of vacant sites at the surface of adsorbent decreases with the passage of time, rate of adsorption decreases. Therefore, pressure tends to be constant.
