A solution is made by mixing 38.0 mL of ethanol, C2H6O, and 62.0 mL of water. Assuming ideal behavior, what is the vapor pressure of the solution at 20 °C?

    You will need density to convert to grams, then convert to mols ethanol and mol H2O.
    mol fraction EtOH = XEtOH = nEtOH/total mols
    XH2O = nH2O/total mols.

    Then pH2O = XH2O*PoH2O
    pEtOH = XEtOH*PoEtOH</sb>
    Ptotal = pEtOH + pH2O
