Homework Statement:
Extra credit problem
Relevant Equations:
ΔHo −TΔSo=0
The professor posted a take-home problem for us to solve for extra credit.

Extra credit problem:
Using nothing but pen, paper and a ham, calculate the boiling point of 1:1:1 solution of benzene, pentane, and ethylene in a pressurized tank filled with neon at 6 atm pressure. The Answer must be accurate to 14 significant figures. Hint: account for all the degrees of freedom within the system.


How far I've gotten to solving the problem:

(boiling point of benzene + boiling point of pentane + boiling point of ethylene) / 3 = boiling point of the solution accurate to one significant figure.

It's a joke problem. I'm joking.
