Immiscible Liquids Phase Diagrams: ConcepTest and Example Problem

Try to answer this ConcepTest and solve this example problem before using this module. Studies show that trying to answer the questions before studying material improves learning and retention. By the end of this module, you should be able to answer these on your own. Answers will be given later in this module.

A sample problem on dew points for immiscible liquids.
Example Problem 1

A gas mixture is 0.75% A and 25% B. As the pressure increases isothermally, component A condenses at 1.6 bar. At 2.4 bar, B starts to condense.  What are the saturation pressures of A and B?
