    Hello,

    How do I determine the change in boiling point of methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) when initially at atmospheric pressure ---- therefore B.P. - 79.6 oC ------ and then under -27 inches of vacuum pressure? What would be the new B.P. of the MEK?

    Please please explain how to do this.

    Solution Summary

    The boiling point at a different pressure is calculated knowing the normal boiling point at 1 atm.
