Based on the results, the composition of the ethanol in samples from the reboiler

were decrease as the time increase since ethanol was more volatile and evaporated which
move to the higher column. Ideally, the composition of the ethanol in the top product tank
and reflux divider should be similar to each other. However, the similar of the
composition only showed from 10 minutes onwards. It was because there might be
contamination since the product tank and reflux divider were not being rinse before the
experiment.
