Lesson 13 Example 13-1 Ethanol (C 2 H 5 OH) and methanol (CH 3 OH) form a mainly ideal solution. At 20 o C, the vapour pressure of ethanol is 44.5 mmHg and that of methanol is 88.7 mmHg. a) Calculate the partial pressures and the total vapour pressure of this solution and the mole fraction of ethanol in the vapour if n ethanol = 1.3 mol and n methanol = 1.25 mol. b) Assume that you can condense the vapour phase alone. Calculate the vapour pressure of the condensed vapour phase and the mole fraction of ethanol in the vapour. a) 5098 . 0 25 . 1 3 . 1 3 . 1 n n n x meOH etOH etOH etOH = + = + = x meOH = 1 – x etOH = 1 – 0.5098 = 0.4902 Raoult’s law: P etOH = x etOH P o etOH = (0.5098)(44.5 torr) = 22.7 torr P meOH = x meOH P o meOH = (0.4902)(88.7 torr) = 43.5 torr P = P etOH + P meOH = 22.7 torr + 43.5 torr = 66.2 torr 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
