0.792 A plot of the ethanol mole fraction in the instantaneous distillate as a function of mol% distilled
is given on the following page. Exercise 13.12 (continued)

Analysis: (continued)
Distillation with 2 stages plus a reboiler:
To obtain the maximum cumulative distillate purity for 20 mol% distilled, operate close to total
reflux, L/V = 1. The relationship between yD and xW in Eq. (1), with x = xW and y = yD, is
obtained from a McCabeThiele diagram by drawing a series of operating lines of slope = L/V =
1 (45o line). For each operating line, starting from the intersection with the 45o line, which is yD,
3 stages are stepped off to determine the corresponding xW. A typical construction that starts
from yD = 0.65 is shown on the next page, where the xW = 0.02. Other sets of values are given in
the following table, which also includes values of the integrand, f = 1/(yD  xW), from which the
integral is evaluated by the trapezoidal rule with variable increments of ∆xW. For example, the
increment of the integral from x1 to x2 is (x1  x2)(f1/2 + f2/2).
The increments are summed over the region from xW = 0.033 to the value corresponding to 20
mol% distilled.

0.0545 From the above table, at xW = 0.001, a very low value, ln(W0/W) = 0.0545. Thus, W/W0 =
0.947 or only 5.3% distilled. Thus, essentially all of the ethanol will be distilled when 20 mol%
of the charge has been distilled.
The composition of the cumulative distillate is given by Eq. (136), which becomes:
yD avg = W0 x0 − Wx x0 − W / W0 x 0.033 − 0.8(0.0)
