But, at any particular time during the distillation
Rearranging and integrating (assuming relative relativity is constant)
And, of course, a similar relationship can be developed for components A and C.
Example 5.5 A quantity of 100 moles of a mixture containing 50 mole percent benzene, 25 mole percent toluene, and 25 mole percent p-xylene is to be simply distilled until the residual benzene content in the still is reduced to 1.73 moles. Calculate the material balance for the separation.
From Eq. (5.31) with a = 2.90 for the benzene-toluene system and a = 6.94 for the benzene—p-xylene system, ln^=-1.16 25
