This is a problem regarding to Margules model and binary solution

alt="i.png" />


1. (30 points) The Margules model for a binary solution of two liquids 1 and 2 gives rise to the excess property
where C1 and C2 are constants. This model well correlates with a wide range of “simple”
binary solution behavior. = (61951 + C2x2)x1x2 (a) Show that this model returns ideal solution behavior for the appropriate chemical
potentials at the pure-substance limits, x1 —> 1 or x2 —> 1. (b) If C1 = C and C2 = 2C, for what value of C will the Margules model gives a
system that can spontaneously separate into two liquid phases? (c) In the case of (b), if C is proportional to the temperature, what are the critical
temperature and composition for the phase-separation behavior?
