Carbon dioxide lasers are used as cutting tools in industry, medicine, and as research instruments in scientific laboratories. To function, such lasers require gas mixtures. One such mixture contains 1.24% carbon dioxide, 97.2% helium, and 1.56% nitrogen (percents given here are mole percent). If the pressure of helium in the mixture is 88.5 atm, what is the pressure of carbon dioxide? (1 atm = 14.7 psi = 101.33 kPa)
