(b) Show that expressions in (a) satisfy the Gibbs/Duhem equation.
(c) Plot GE
/RT, ln 1 and ln 2 as calculated by the given equation for GE
/RT and by the equations
developed in (a) vs. x1. Label points ln 1
andln 2
and show their values on the plot.
(Show table of calculated values and a sample of calculation for GE
/RT, ln 1 and ln 2 at x1 =

2. Assuming that eq. (11.68) is valid for vapor phase and eq. (11.44) is fugacity for liquid phase
where the molar volume of saturated liquid is given by eq. (3.72), determine the fugacity and
fugacity coefficient for chloroform at 200o
C (473.15K) and pressure range from 0 to 40 bar. Plot
the results as function of pressure on a single graph. At 200o
C (473.15K) the vapor pressure of
chloroform is 22.27 bar.

3. The following table is a set of VLE data for the system methanol(1)/water(2) at 60o
C (333.15K).
(a) Prepare a P-x1-y1 diagram that compares the experimental data with values calculated from
Wilson and NRTL equations.
(b) Prepare diagrams that show the residuals P and y1 plotted vs. x1 for both models.
