SCHOOL OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING CEIC3001 Advanced Thermodynamics and Separation Tutorial 6 Question 1 A mixture containing 65 mol% benzene (1) and 35 mol% toluene (2) is to be separated by distillation. The feed enters the distillation column as a saturated liquid. The specification for the distillate is 95 mol% benzene while the bottom product must contain a minimum of 95 mol% toluene. The column is operating at a pressure of 1 atm. Using the y - x diagram at the back of this sheet: a) Determine the minimum number of stages required to achieve the given
