Given vapour pressure and temperature data and assuming that heat of vaporization is
independent of temperature, devise a graphical method of predicting the heat of
vaporization from the Clausius-Clapeyron equation. Vapour pressure of 2,2,4-trimethyl
pentane at various temperatures is given below. Use your method to estimate the heat of
vaporization for this compound. Comment on the validity of your assumption. (R=8.314
