The problem is attached in the following file.

Vapor pressures of chlorobenzene and water are given below:
Pressure, mm Hg 100 50 30 26
Temperature oC, Chlorobenzene 70.4 53.7 42.7 34.5
Temperature oC, Water 51.7 38.5 29.9 22.5
If steam is blown into the still containing a mixture of these two components and the total pressure is 130 mm Hg, estimate the temperature of boiling and the composition of the distillate. The two components are immiscible in the liquid :
