Procedure: 1. A distilling column was packed with the column packing material. 2. Five screw cap vials were obtained and labeled (HETP, 1, 2, 3, 4). 3. The vials were then weighed along w/ their caps, and that weigh was recorded. 4. Next, 40 mL of an equimolar mixture of cyclohexane and toluene was poured
