Material balance on A: xF= f*yD + (1-f)*xB yD = [-(1-f)/f]*xB + xF/f @State line with slope = -(1-f)/f @Pass thru ( xF,xF) yD (xB=xF) = -(1-f)xF/f +xF/f = xF[1-1+f] = xF xB,yd are in thermodynamic equilibrium , yD = ye(xB) yD xB xF (xF,xF) Operating line Equilibrium line x y f=0
Steps: 1) Draw equilibrium curve 2) Find (xF,xF) on the diagonal line 3) Calculate slope of operating line = -(1-f)/f where f is the fraction vaporized. 4) Draw a line with slope –(1-f)/f. 5) Find intersection with equilibrium curve, (xB,yD) 6) Calculate T from (T-xy) diagram.

Remarks: @ As f increases, abs(slope) = (1-f)/f decreaseas. @ For f = 0, slope = -(1-f)/f = -inf xB = xF, yD = ye(xF) @ For f = 1, slope = 0 yD = xF, xF = ye(xB) @ For 0<f< 1, f = AB/AC(Lever Rule) @ As f increase, yD decreases, xB decreases, T increases x y xB yD (xF,xF) f=1 f=0
