Gas binary system vinyl chloride - water

In summary, a gas binary system is a mixture of two gases, vinyl chloride and water vapor, present in a fixed ratio. When vinyl chloride is present in this system, it can alter the properties of water and create potential hazards, such as fire and health risks. The concentration of vinyl chloride in water can be measured using analytical techniques, and this gas binary system is commonly used in industrial processes and the production of various chemical compounds.

hello,
how I can calculate the composition of a gas binary mixture of vinyl chloride and water knowing that I have only the following informations:
  • the water is saturated by the vinyl chloride
  • the pressure of the mixture is 4bars
or can you tell me what I have to look as information to be able to calculate the concentration of the water in the mixture?

thank you

for your question. To calculate the composition of a gas binary mixture, we need to know the partial pressures of each component in the mixture. In this case, we are given the pressure of the mixture (4 bars) and the fact that the water is saturated with vinyl chloride. This means that the partial pressure of vinyl chloride is equal to the total pressure of the mixture, which is 4 bars.

To calculate the partial pressure of water, we need to use the vapor pressure of water at the given temperature. This information can be found in a vapor pressure table or calculated using the Antoine equation. Once we have the partial pressures of both components, we can use the ideal gas law to calculate the mole fraction of water in the mixture. This will give us the concentration of water in the gas binary system.

Other information that would be helpful in this calculation would be the temperature of the mixture and the total mole fraction of the mixture. Additionally, knowing the specific properties of vinyl chloride, such as its molar mass and vapor pressure, would also aid in the calculation.

I hope this helps answer your question and guides you in the right direction for calculating the composition of the gas binary system of vinyl chloride and water.
 

1. What is a gas binary system?

A gas binary system refers to a mixture of two gases that are present in a fixed ratio. In this case, the gases are vinyl chloride and water vapor.

2. How does vinyl chloride affect the properties of water?

Vinyl chloride is a highly flammable and toxic gas that can dissolve in water. When present in a gas binary system, it can alter the chemical and physical properties of water, such as its boiling point and acidity.

3. What are the potential hazards of a gas binary system containing vinyl chloride and water?

The hazards associated with this gas binary system include the risk of fire and explosion due to the flammability of vinyl chloride, as well as the potential health risks from exposure to toxic levels of the gas.

4. How is the concentration of vinyl chloride in water measured in a gas binary system?

The concentration of vinyl chloride in water can be measured using various analytical techniques, such as gas chromatography. This involves separating the components of the gas binary system and quantifying the amount of vinyl chloride present in the water.

5. What are the common uses of a gas binary system vinyl chloride - water?

This gas binary system is commonly used in industrial processes, such as the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics. It is also used in the production of solvents, refrigerants, and other chemical compounds.
