to determine equilibrium states.

comprised of chemically similar species.

A modification of Raoult's law that removes the restriction to chemically

similar species is treated.

Finally the calculations based on equilibrium ratios or K-values are

considered.

Phase equilibrium

Application

Distillation, absorption, and extraction bring

phases of different composition into contact.

system from equilibrium.

Quantitative treatment of mass transfer

the equilibrium T, P, and phase

compositions must be known.

A static condition in which no changes

occur in the macroscopic properties of a

system with time.

At the microscopic level, conditions are not

static.

The average rate of passage of molecules is

the same in both directions, and no net

interphase transfer of material occurs.

Phase rule:

Duhems rule:

for any closed system formed initially from given masses

of prescribed chemical species, the equilibrium state is

completely determined when any two independent

variables are fixed.

Two ? When phase rule F = 1, at least one of the two

variables must be extensive, and when F = 0, both must

6

be extensive.

Vapor/Liquid equilibrium (VLE) is the state of coexistence of liquid and

vapor phases. In this qualitative discussion, we limit consideration to systems

comprised of two chemical species, because systems of greater complexity

cannot be adequately represented graphically.

When N = 2, the phase rule becomes F = 4 - . Since there must be at least

one phase ( = 1), the maximum number of phase-rule variables which must be

specified to fix the intensive state of the system is three: namely, P, T, and

one mole (or mass) fraction. All equilibrium states of the system can therefore

be represented in three dimensional P-T- composition space. Within this space,

the states of pairs of phases coexisting at equilibrium (F = 4 - 2 = 2) define

surfaces. A schematic three-dimensional diagram illustrating these surfaces for

VLE is shown in Fig. below:

which contain the equilibrium states of saturated vapor and

saturated liquid for a binary system:

The under surface contains the saturated-vapor states; it is

the P-T-yl surface.

The upper surface contains the saturated-liquid states; it is

the P-T-xl surface.

These surfaces intersect along the lines UBHC2 and RKAC1,

which represent the vapor pressure-vs.-T curves for pure species

1 and 2.

of binary VLE are usually depicted by two-dimensional graphs. The

three principal planes, each perpendicular to one of the coordinate

axes.

A vertical plane perpendicular to the temperature axis is outlined

as ALBDEA. The lines on this plane form a P-x1-y1 phase diagram at

constant T.

A horizontal plane perpendicular to the P axis is identified by

HIJKLH. Viewed from the top, the lines on this plane represent a

T-x1-y1 diagram at constant P.

composition axis, is indicated by MNQRSLM, this is the P-T

diagram.

At points A and B in Fig. 10.3 saturated-liquid and

saturated-vapor lines intersect. At such points a saturated

liquid of one composition and a saturated vapor of another

composition have the same T and P, and the two phases are

therefore in equilibrium.

12

coexisting at equilibrium define surfaces.

The subcooled-liquid region lies above the upper

surface; the superheated-vapor region lies below the

under surface.

UBHC1 and KAC2 represent the vapor pressure-vs.-T

curves for pure species 1 and 2.

C1 and C2 are the critical points of pure species 1 and

2.

L is a bubble point and the upper surface is the

bubblepoint surface.

Line VL is an example of a tie line, which connects

points representing phases in equilibrium.

W is a dewpoint and the lower surface is the dewpoint

surface.

When thermodynamics is applied to vapor liquid

equilibrium, the goal is to find by calculation the temperatures,

pressures, and compositions of phases in equilibrium.

18

Raoults law:

the vapor phase is an ideal gas (apply for low to

moderate pressure)

the liquid phase is an ideal solution (apply when

the species that are chemically similar)

yi P xi Pi sat

(i 1, 2, ..., N )

where xi is a liquid-phase mole fraction, yi is a vaporphase mole fraction, and Pi sat is the vapor pressure

of pure species i at the temperature of the system. The

product yi P on the left side of Eq. is known as the partial

pressure of species i

19

phases wherein the molecular species are not too different

in size and are of the same chemical nature

although it provides a realistic description of actual

behavior for a small class of systems, it is valid for any

species present at a mole fraction approaching unity,

provided that the vapor phase is an ideal gas.

20

Calculations with Raoult's Law

Engineering interest centers on dewpoint and bubblepoint calculations;

there are four classes:

BUBL (vapor) or a DEW (liquid) composition and either P or T. Thus,

one must specify either the liquid-phase or the vapor-phase composition

and either T or P.

Flash calculations

A liquid at a pressure equal to or greater than its

bubblepoint pressure flashes or partially

evaporates when the pressure is reduced,

producing a two-phase system of vapor and liquid

in equilibrium.

composition, z1 = 0.45, z2 = 0.35, z3 = 0.20, Assuming that Raoults law is appropriate to this

system, determine L, V, {xi}, and {yi}. The vapor pressures of the pure species are given.
