ENTHALPY-CONCENTRATION DIAGRAM

Change in composition is accompanied by a change

in enthalpy. For a given T and concentration x of a

liquid, the molar enthalpy HL can be calculated using

the equation:

HL = molar enthalpy of solution at T, kJ/kmol

Since the heat of mixing of the vapour is negligible,

we can use the following equation to compute the
