Example Problem 1

Download the spreadsheet (spreadsheet name: PRFUG) for the Peng-Robinson equation of state for mixtures to determine vapor-liquid equilibrium. Determine the fugacity coefficients in both liquid and vapor phases to calculate the bubble point pressure and vapor composition. Given below are the temperature and liquid compositions. Determine the vapor compositions, yi and the pressure.
xpentene = 0.20    xhexane = 0.30    xheptane = 0.50     T = 315 K
