original mixture. The process involves both the vaporization of the original liquid in order to generate the vapours and the subsequent condensation of the vapours to form the desired liquid products. It is evident that vapour-liquid equilibria (VLE) are essential to this separation process. Typical temperature-composition (T-x-y) diagrams, pressure-composition (P-x-y) diagrams, and vapour-liquid composition (x-y) diagrams for completely miscible binary systems are depicted in Figure 1.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
