12.4 By Eqs. (12.15), ln γ

and ln γ

Therefore, ln

Whence, ln(α
12
r) = A(1 −2x
1
)
If an azeotrope exists, α
12
= 1 at 0 ≤ x
az
1
≤ 1. At this value of x
1
, lnr = A(1 −2x
az
1
)
The quantity A(1 − 2x
1
) is linear in x
1
, and there are two possible relationships, depending on the
sign of A. An azeotrope exhists whenever | A| ≤ | lnr|. NO azeotrope can exist when | A| < | lnr|.
12.5 Perhaps the easiest way to proceed here is to note that an extremum in ln γ
1
is accompanied by the
opposite extremum in ln γ
2
. Thus the difference ln γ
1
− ln γ
2
is also an extremum, and Eq. (12.8)
becomes useful:
ln γ
1
−ln γ
2
= ln
γ
1
γ
2
=
d(G
E
/RT
dx

Thus, given an expression for G
E
/RT = g(x
1
), we locate an extremum through:
d

(G

/RT)
dx

=

This equation has a zero value if either A
12
or A
21
is zero. However, this makes G
E
/RT everywhere
zero, and no extremum is possible. If either quantity in parentheses is zero, substitution for A and
d A/dx
1
reduces the expression to A
12
= 0 or A
21
= 0, again making G
E
/RT everywhere zero. We
conclude that no values of the parameters exist that provide for an extremum in ln(γ
1

2
).
The Margules equation is given by Eq. (12.9b), here written:

When r = 2, x
1
= 0, and the extrema in ln γ
1
and ln γ
2
occur at the left edge of a diagram such
as those of Fig. 12.9. For values of r > 2, the extrema shift to the right, reaching a limiting value for
r = ∞ at x
1
= 1/3. For positive values of the parameters, in all of these cases A
21
> A
12
, and the
intercepts of the ln γ
2
curves at x
1
= 1 are larger than the intercepts of the ln γ
1
curves at x
1
= 0.
When r = 1/2, x
1
= 1, and the extrema in ln γ
1
and ln γ
2
occur at the right edge of a diagram
such as those of Fig. 12.9. For values of r < 1/2, the extrema shift to the left, reaching a limiting
value for r = 0 at x
1
= 2/3. For positive values of the parameters, in all of these cases A
21
< A
12
,
and the intercepts of the ln γ
1
curves at x
1
= 0 are larger than the intercepts of the ln γ
2
curves at
x

No extrema exist for values of r between 1/2 and 2.

The remainder of the derivation is the same as in Part (a).
12.10 This behavior requires positive deviations from Raoult’s law over part of the composition range and
negative deviations over the remainder. Thus a plot of G
E
vs. x
1
starts and ends with G
E
= 0 at
x
1
= 0 and x
1
= 1 and shows positive values over part of the composition range and negative values
over the remainder, with an intermediate crossing of the x
1
axis. Because these deviations are usually
quite small, the vapor pressures P
sat
1
and P
sat
2
must not be too different, otherwise the dewpoint and
bubblepoint curves cannot exhibit extrema.

ln γ

12.66 Isobaric data reduction is complicated by the fact that both composition and temperature vary from
point to point, whereas for isothermal data composition is the only signiﬁcant variable. (The effect
of pressure on liquid-phase properties is assumed negligible.) Because the activity coefﬁcients are
strong functions of both liquid composition and T, which are correlated, it is quite impossible without
additional information to separate the effect of composition from that of T. Moreover, the P
sat
i
values
depend strongly on T, and one must have accurate vapor-pressure data over a temperature range.
