Problem: Carbon disulfide has a vapor pressure of 363 torr at 25 °C and a normal boiling point of 46.3 °C. Find ΔHvap for carbon disulfide.

FREE Expert Solution

Vapor Pressure looks at the equilibrium established between vaporization and condensation. By using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, the enthalpy of vaporization can be determined. 



The vapor pressure at the normal boiling point is 1 atm or 760 torr.
