C. Derivations

C1. Derive Eq. (8-7) for the two-column, binary, heterogeneous azeotrope system.

C2. An equation for αorg–w in w similar to Eq. (8-13) is easy to derive; do it. Compare the predicted equilibrium in water with the butanol-water equilibrium data given in Problem 8.D2. Comment on the fit. Vapor pressure data are in Perry and Green (1984). Use the data in Table 8-2 for solubility data.

C3. For a binary heterogeneous azeotrope separation, the feed can be introduced into the liquid-liquid separator. In this case two stripping columns are used.

a. Sketch the column arrangement.

b. Draw the McCabe-Thiele diagram for this system.

c. Compare this system to the system in Figure 8-3A.

C4. Sketch the McCabe-Thiele diagram for a two-pressure ...
