Benzene and naphthalene form ideal solution over the entire range of composition. The vapour pressure of pure benzene and naphthalene at 300 K are 50.71 mm Hg and 32.06 mm Hg respectively. Calculate the mole fraction of benzene in vapour phase if 80 g of benzene is mixed with 100 g of naphthalene.
of benzene = 50.71 mm Hg
of naphthalene = 32.06 mm Hg
Using the formula of lowering vapour pressure to calculate mole fraction of benzene and naphthalene in solution,
Using formula for vapour pressure,
Mole fraction of benzene in vapour phase is calculated by,
Thus, mole fraction of benzene in vapour phase is 0.6744

PREVIOUSVapour pressures of pure acetone and chloroform at 328 K are 741.8 mm Hg and 632.8 mm Hg respectively. Assuming that they form ideal solution over the entire range of composition, plot ptotal, pchloroform, and pacetoneas a function of xacetone. The experimental data observed for different compositions of mixture is:Plot this data also on the same graph paper. Indicate whether it has positive deviation or negative deviation from the ideal solution.NEXTThe air is a mixture of a number of gases. The major components are oxygen and nitrogen with approximate proportion of 20% is to 79% by volume at 298 K. The water is in equilibrium with air at a pressure of 10 atm. At 298 K if the Henry’s law constants for oxygen and nitrogen at 298 K are 3.30 × 107 mm and 6.51 × 107 mm respectively, calculate the composition of these gases in water.
