The following definition for reflux ratio is from http://www.solvent--recycling.com/reflux%20ratio.html
"The Reflux ratio is the ratio between the boil up rate and the take-off rate. Or in other words, it is the ratio between the amount of reflux that goes back down the distillation column and the ...
A definition of reflux ratio is shown, as well as the significance of certain equations associated with fractional distillation.
