FIGURE 2.12 Isothermal flash
Combining and rearranging:
The only variable that is unknown in this equation is the (V/F) ratio since the P/s are functions of temperature only. Therefore, another iterative, trial-and-error solution is required. One guesses a (V/F) and sees whether equation (2.13) is satisfied. The left-hand side of equation (2.13) is a nonmonotonic function (see Figure 2.13). A value of zero for (V/F) always satisfies the
