Mixing and Solution: Interactive Simulation

The simulation will run on your browser. Try to predict the behavior when a parameter changes before using a slider to change that parameter. A screencast below explains how to use this simulation.

Simulation: Partial Molar Enthalpy

Try to answer this question before determining the answer with the simulation. We suggest that you write down the reasons for your answer.

  1. If the molar enthalpy of a mixture is less than either of the pure component molar enthalpies, is the molar enthalpy of an ideal solution greater than or less than the molar enthalpy of the mixture ?
