Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Namie on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 9:28pm.

When doing a simple distillation of ethanol-water, is the vapor pure ethanol or does it also contain water? (knowing that ethanol has lower boiling point than water)
If it is not pure ethanol, why is it not possible to separate water & ethanol completely?

Thanks in advance.
