Can anyone tell me how to calculate the quantity of a third
component added in an azeotropic batch distillation of a
known quantity of azeotropic mixture?

Can anyone tell me how to calculate the quantity of a third component added in an azeotropic batch..

Answer / dinesh patil

The quantity is based on solubility of solvent at that
particular thempreture and Pressure.

At room temperture & pressure ,suppose the feed quanity is
as (A = 10 kg, B=15kg, solubility of solvent is 0.150 kg
of B/kg of sovent while that of A is negligible.

Solvent required to extract 15 kg of B = (15/0.150)= 1000

If we increase the T & / P solubility increase then we have
to take respective solubility value at that particular T
& / P while calculation the solvent.

Question 94 - The resolution of separation, Rs for chromatography is given by the formula Rs = (difference in retention time) / (average width at the base). In a chromatogram, 3 peaks a, b and c are found. Average widths W at the bases of the solutes are : Wa = 20 s, Wb = 40 s, Wc = 30 s. Resolutions of separation, Rs for solutes b and c in comparison to a are 2 and 4 respectively. The differences in retention times T for b and c in comparison to a are (Tb - Ta) and (Tc - Ta), Ta = Tc - Tb : (a) Form 2 equations involving Rs as a function of Wa, Wb, Wc, Ta, Tb and Tc. (b) Find the values of Ta, Tb and Tc.
