Solution: You may want to reference (Pages 542 - 552) Section 13.5 while completing this problem.At 20˚C the vapor pressure of benzene C6H6 is 75 torr and that of toluene C7H8 is 22 torr. Assume that benzene and toluene form an ideal solution. In a solution composed of benzene and toluene that has a vapor pressure of 36 torr at 20˚C, what is the mole fraction of benzene?
