sir ...........consider the reaction A->B+C
A(g) -> B(g)+C(g)
AT TIME T=0 p1 atm -> 0atm 0atm
AT TIME T (P1-x)atm xatm xatm
where x is the decrease in partial pressure of A and increase in partial pressure of B&C.
my question is---why is there a decrease in partial pressure in A and why is there a increase in partial pressure of B and C.it is very confusing...............thank you

In the reaction of A --> B + C
When reaction proceeds, the amount of A gas decreases. So, the partial pressure of A keeps on decreasing.
As reaction proceeds, the amount of B and C increases, hence the partial pressure of B and C increases.
