I have been told Dalton's law of partial pressures can be proved from kinetic theory. This is my reasoning for why this might be:
Since in kinetic theory there are no forces of attraction between the particles, the only "force" on the container is the pressure exerted by the different gas species hitting on it, multiplied by the collision area, which will be different for the different species of gas. We thus consider the total pressure to be given by the sum of these individual pressures from the different gas species. This would also make sense since both kinetic theory and Dalton's law work on the assumption that the gas is an ideal one.
Is this too simplistic of an explanation? Many thanks.
