    Hi,

    Please explain as ELEMENTARY as possible.

    Thank you (-:

    A liquid has a heat of vaporization of 35.5kJ/mol and a boiling point of 122 EC at 1 atm. What is its vapor pressure at 109EC?

    I am thinking that differential equations are out of the question so I can't derive this expression. ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution is provided in 185 words. It uses Gibbs Free Energy and how this relates to entropy, as well as the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, to solve for vapor pressure.
