BUBL P Calculation
Calculation:
Step 1: Find P1sat & P2sat using Antoine equation.

T / C + C

ln P1sat / kPa = 13.7819

2726.81
100C + 217.572

= 5.195
sat
Thus, P1 = 180.45kPa

ln P2sat / kPa = 13.932

3056.96
100C + 217.625

sat
Thus, P2 = 74.2597kPa

Step 2: Find P.

P = x1 P1sat + x2 P2sat

= x1 P1sat + (1 x1 )P2sat
= 0.33(180.45kPa ) + (1 0.33)(74.2597 kPa )

Step 3: Calculate y1 using Raoults law.

yi P = xi Pi sat
y1 = x1 P1sat P = 0.33(180.45kPa ) 109.3025kPa = 0.5448
