The boiling point of ethanol is 78.5C and delta H vap = 40.5kJ/mol. Calculate the vapor pressure (in torr) of ethanol at 0.0C ?
I know that I am close to the answer using this formula with plugged in information:
ln p2/760= 40500/8.314(1/273-1/351.1)
Just not sure what I am doing wrong. Is someone could assist me that would be greatly appreciated! thanks :)
I didn't go through it but it appears to me you didn't convert T2 properly.
273.15 + 78.5 = 351.65. Try that. If it doesn't work let me know and I'll go through the math. BUT if would help if you posted you work and I looked for the error. It's better that way.
