I have the following ex:
Given: methylcyclopentane and ethanol, pressure is 1 atm.
you have an azeotrope at 60.06°C
The following antoine numbers are also given for antoines formula:
A: 6.86640 B:1188.050 and C:226.276 (methylcyclopentane)
A:8.11220 B:1592.864 C:226.184(ethanol)
with the formula: logP= A - B/(Temperature in °C + C)
Now they want me to calculate the activitycoeficients gamma, wich is no problem because you have: Antoines formula to find P and with this pressure I can suimple use : Gamma (activitycoefficient)= 760mmHh / P (:the one you calculate with antoine)
Now the second question is a bit harder: you need to calculate the van laar constants, but how can you do this if you do not now what the mixture is ? (you do not now what X1 or X2 is ?) and you do need them to use van laars equation? or not?
van laar being: ln(gamma) = A / (1 + A/B.x1/x2)² ==> how can I find A and B (van laar constants if I do not know X1 nor X2 ?)
