    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The Clausius-Clapyeron equation ln(p2/p1) = -ΔHvap/R (1/t2 - 1/t1) is derived assuming that ΔHvap is independent of temperature.
    Find ΔHvap as a function of temperature for ethanol at constant external pressure.


    2. Relevant equations

    these are not relevant equations but the equations that i tried solving using-
    dU = TdS − pdV



    3. The attempt at a solution
    i tried starting with the equation for dh and integrating it. i also tried to derive using the clapyeron equation dp=(ΔH/tΔv) dt but i keep getting stuck. the other half of the question asks to derive the clausius clapyeron using the ΔH of this question so I am skeptic about the way I have approached this question.
