 Textbook and lecture notes are permitted. No solved problems of any kind are permitted,
including tutorial problems and assigned problems. Red and gold sticker calculators are allowed.
 The examination time is limited to 50 minutes.
 Please check that your exam contains 2 pages. The exam consists of 3 questions, the value of
which is shown on the examination paper. Attempt all questions.
 Please write your student number only on all examination booklets.


Question 1 (40 Marks)
A mixture of 1-chlorobutane(1)/chlorobenzene (2) with total composition of z1=0.6 and z2=0.4 is
allowed to equilibrate inside a drum, where it phase-separates into liquid and vapour. The P-x-y
diagram for this mixture at 90 oC is shown in Figure 1.

(10 Marks) What are the dew and bubble point pressures and compositions for the above mixture
           at 90 oC? Please provide graphical estimations only.
(10 Marks) If the drum operates at (T1, P1) = (90 oC, 90 kPa), what are the liquid (xi) and vapour
           (yi) phase compositions? A graphical estimation will suffice.
(20 Marks) Looking to further increase the mole fraction of 1-chlorobutane in the vapour, your
           assistant suggests a flash drum operation under T2= 100 oC and P2=90 kPa. Perform
           the calculations that allow you to examine the validity of her/his claim.

Useful information:
- You can assume that Raoult’s law is valid for this mixture.
