Question

# When the mixture of two immiscible liquids (water and nitrobenzene) boils at 372 K and the vapour pressures at this temperature are 97.7 kPa(H2O) and 3.6 kPa(C6H5NO2), calculate the weight percentage of nitrobenzene in the vapour.

Solution

## The correct option is D 20.1 %Since the two liquids given are immiscible, the mole fraction for both in liquid mixture will be taken as 1 total vapour pressure of liquid mixture =97.7+3.6=101.3kPa Now mole fraction of nitrobenzene in vapour phase =3.6101.3=0.0355 Now weight percentage of NO2 in vapour phase =0.0355×123(1−0.0355)×18+0.0355×123×100 =20.1%
