# Problem: Two alcohols, isopropyl alcohol and propyl alcohol, have the same molecular formula, C3H8O. A solution of the two that is two-thirds by mass isopropyl alcohol has a vapor pressure of 0.110 atm at 313 K. A solution that is one-third by mass isopropyl alcohol has a vapor pressure of 0.089 atm at 313 K.Calculate the vapor pressure of each pure alcohol at this temperature.

###### Problem Details

Two alcohols, isopropyl alcohol and propyl alcohol, have the same molecular formula, C3H8O. A solution of the two that is two-thirds by mass isopropyl alcohol has a vapor pressure of 0.110 atm at 313 K. A solution that is one-third by mass isopropyl alcohol has a vapor pressure of 0.089 atm at 313 K.

Calculate the vapor pressure of each pure alcohol at this temperature.
