At 298 K, the Henry's law constant for oxygen is 0.00130 M/atm. Air is 21.0% oxygen.

    0.000273 M

    Explanation:

    Henry's states that at constant temperature the amount of a gas that dissolves in a liquid is directly proportional to the partial pressure in of that gas in equilibrium with that liquid.

    Pressure of Oxygen = mole fraction of Oxygen * 1.00 atm

    Mole fraction Oxygen = 21/100 * 1.00atm = 0.21 atm

    Molar solubility of Oxygen = KH * PO2 = 0.0013 * 0.21 = 0.000273 M
