For the conversion process (we designate monoclinic as the “α” form and rhombic as the “β” form for convenience): Sα (298.15K, 0.101MPa) → Sβ (298.15K, 0.101MPa), calculate (a) ∆trans Sm , (b) ∆trans Hm ,and (c) ∆trans Gm , given ◦ =22.59 J K−1 mol−1 for rhombic sulfur Cp,m(β) ◦ Cp,m(α) =23.64 J K−1 mol−1 for monoclinic sulfur ∆trans H ◦ =397.9 J mol−1 for the transition of rhombic sulfur to monoclinic sulfur at the reversible transition temperature of 368.60 K and 0.101 MPa. Answer Note that the ∆trans H ◦ given is ∆βα H ◦ ,where β is the initial state and α is the final state: Sβ (298.15 K,0.101 MPa) → Sα (298.15 K,0.101 MPa). Therefore, for the transition of monoclinic (α) to rhombic (β), ∆αβ H ◦ = −397.9 J mol−1 . Also, we ◦ ◦ − Cp,m(α) , i.e., final state − initial state. denote ∆αβ Cp◦ = Cp,m(β) (a) At 368.60 K and the standard pressure of 0.101 MPa, the two forms of sulfur are in equilibrium (the ◦ = ∆ H ◦ /368.6 K = −1.0789 transition is reversible) and, therefore, ∆αβ G◦ = 0. Therefore, ∆αβ Sm αβ J K−1 mol−1 . At 298.15 K, ◦ ∆αβ Sm =∆αβ Sm + 298.15 Z K 368.60 K ∆αβ Cp◦ dT T =−1.0789 J K−1 mol−1 + (22.59 − 23.64) J K−1 mol−1 × ln =−0.8562 J K−1 mol−1 µ 298.15 368.60 ¶ (b) Similarly, ◦ ∆αβ Hm =∆αβ Hm + 298.15 Z K ∆αβ Cp◦ dT 368.60 K −1 =−397.9 J mol + (22.59 − 23.64) J K−1 mol−1 × (298.15 − 368.60) K =−323.9 J mol−1 (c) From the entropy and enthalpy for the transition, we get ∆αβ Gm =∆αβ Hm − T ∆αβ Sm =−68.62 J mol−1 The negative value for ∆αβ Gm is consistent with the fact that the transition is spontaneous at this temperature. 1 2. The vapor pressures of solid and liquid hydrogen cyanide in the appropriate temperature ranges are given, in Clausius-Clapeyron form, by 4252.4 T 3345.8 liquid :ln p/(kPa) = 15.818 − T solid : ln p(kPa) = 19.489 − (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) Find Find Find Find Find the the the the the molar enthalpy of sublimation for HCN. molar enthalpy of vaporization for HCN. molar enthalpy of fusion for HCN. triple point temperature and pressure. normal boiling point of HCN. Answer: ∆H + c, we get ∆sub H from the expression for the vapor (a) Since the Clausius-Clapeyron form is ln p = − RT pressure of the solid: ∆sub H = 4252.4R = 35, 357 J mol−1 (b) The enthalpy of vaporization is obtained from the expression for the vapor pressure of the liquid: ∆vap H = 3345.8R = 27, 819 J mol−1 (c) The enthalpy of fusion is calculated by recognizing that enthalpies are state functions and, therefore, ∆sub H = ∆f us H + ∆vap H. Therefore, ∆f us H = ∆sub H − ∆vap H = 7, 538.0 J mol−1 (d) At the triple point, the solid and liquid lines intersect. Therefore, 19.489 − 3345.8 4252.4 = 15.818 − . T T Solving for the triple point temperatrure, we get T = 246.96 K. Substituting the temperature back into one of the equations, we get 3345.8 246.96 = 2.2701 ln p/(kPa) = 15.818 − Therefore, p = 9.6804 kPa. (e) The normal boiling point corresponds to the temperature at which p = 101 kPa (or 0.101 MPa or 1.01 bar = 1 atm): T = −3345.8 ln(101) − 15.818 = 298.66 K. 2 3.

(b) (i) The liquid starts to boil at 331.50 K. (ii) Since the vapor that forms at 331.5 K from a liquid mixture with x2 = 0.80 will be richer in component 2, the liquid composition will move towards the azeotrope. Therefore, the temperature as the last drop of liquid evaporates will be equal to that at the azeotropic composition, i.e., 336.4 K. (iii) The tempearture corresponding to x2 = 0.50 is 335.7 K. 4 5.
