Chapter 12 - Section B - Non-Numerical Solutions 12.2 Equation (12.1) may be written: y i P = x i γ i P sat i . Summing for i = 1 , 2 gives: P = x 1 γ 1 P sat 1 + x 2 γ 2 P sat 2 . Differentiate at constant T : dP dx 1 = P sat 1 µ x 1 d γ 1 dx 1 + γ 1 + P sat 2 µ x 2 d γ 2 dx 1 γ 2 Apply this equation to the limiting conditions: For x 1 = 0: x 2 = 1 γ 1 = γ 1 γ 2 = 1 d γ 2 dx 1 = 0 For x 1 = 1: x 2 = 0 γ 1 = 1 γ 2 = γ 2 d γ 1 dx 1 = 0 Then, µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 0 = P sat 1 γ 1 P sat 2 or µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 0 + P sat 2 = P sat 1 γ 1 µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 1 = P sat 1 P sat 2 γ 2 or µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 1 P sat 1 =− P sat 2 γ 2 Since both P sat i and γ i are always positive definite, it follows that: µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 0 ≥− P sat 2 and µ dP dx 1 x 1 = 1 P sat 1 12.4 By Eqs. (12.15), ln γ 1 = Ax 2 2 and ln γ 2 = Ax 2 1 Therefore, ln γ 1 γ 2 = A ( x 2 2 x 2 1 ) = A ( x 2 x 1 ) = A ( 1 2 x 1 ) By Eq. (12.1), γ 1 γ 2 = y 1 x 2 P sat 2 y 2 x 1 P sat 1 = µ y 1 / x 1 y 2 / x 2 ¶µ P sat 2 P sat 1 = α 12 r Whence, ln 12 r ) = A ( 1 2 x 1 ) If an azeotrope exists, α 12 = 1a t0 x az 1 1. At this value of x 1 , ln r = A ( 1 2 x az 1 ) The quantity A ( 1 2 x 1 ) is linear in x 1 , and there are two possible relationships, depending on the sign of A . An azeotrope exhists whenever | A |≤| ln r | . NO azeotrope can exist when | A | < | ln r | . 12.5 Perhaps the easiest way to proceed here is to note that an extremum in ln γ 1 is accompanied by the opposite extremum in ln γ 2 . Thus the difference ln γ 1 ln γ 2 is also an extremum, and Eq. (12.8) becomes useful: ln γ 1 ln γ 2 = ln γ 1 γ 2 = d ( G E / RT dx 1 Thus, given an expression for G E / RT = g ( x 1 ) , we locate an extremum through: d 2 ( G E / RT ) dx 2 1 = d ln 1 2 ) dx 1 = 0
