Phenol and water form non-ideal liquid mixtures. When 7.32g of phenol and 7.95g of water are mixed together at 60°C they form two immiscible liquid phases with mole fractions of phenol of 0.042 and 0.161.
(i) Calculate the overall mole fraction of phenol in the mixture.
(ii) Use the lever rule to determine the relative amount of the two phases. Hint: the relative positive of mole fractions can be used to compute the needed distances in the lever rule.
