Question: In Exercise 112 in Chapter 5 the pressure of CO2

In Exercise 112 in Chapter 5, the pressure of CO2 in a bottle of sparkling wine was calculated assuming that the CO2 was insoluble in water. This was an incorrect assumption. Redo this problem by assuming that CO2 obeys Henry’s law. Use the data given in that problem to calculate the partial pressure of CO2 in the gas phase and the solubility of CO2 in the wine at 25oC. The Henry’s law constant for CO2 is 32 L atm/ mol at 25oC with Henry’s law in the form P = kC, where C is the concentration of the gas in mol/ L.
