A mixture of two miscible liquids with widely different boiling points is distilled. The temperature of the distilled liquid is observed to plateau and then drop before rising again. Explain the temperature drop.
(a) If a mixture is distilled rapidly, the seperation of its components is poorer than if the mixture is distilled slowly. Explain.
Distillation is the process of separating components of a mixture based on the difference between solutes in the boiling point using selective boiling and condensation.
Answer and Explanation: 1
Temperature drop can be explained as after the low boiling, the liquid is completely distilled over the residual liquid and has a temperature that is...
