I'm trying to find the minimum work required to completely separate sugar from 1L water-sugar solution. The mass fraction of sugar in water is known, but the density is unknown. I tried doing it using the Gibbs energy of mixing but I think i need the density.. Is it right? or i don't need it at all?

Thanks in advance!
