    6. Zinc may exist as a solid, a liquid, or a vapor. The equilibrium pressure-temperature relationship between solid zinc and zinc vapor is giben by the vapor pressure equation for the solid. A similar relation exists for liquid zinc. At the triple point all three phases, solid, liquid, and vapor exist in equilibrium. That means that the vapor pressure of the liquid and the solid are the same. The vapor pressure of solid Zn varies

    15755with T as: and the vapor pressure of liquid lnP(atm)0.755ln(T);19.25T

    15246Zn varies with T as:. Calculate: (a) The lnP(atm)1.255ln(T);21.79T

    boiling point of Zn under 1 atm; (b) The triple-point temperature; (c) the heat of evaporation of Zn at the normal (1 atm) boiling point; (d) The heat of fusion of Zn at the triple-point temperature; (e)The differences between the heat capacities of solid and liquid Zn. (4.8, p118)

    To solve the equation, let y1 = 21.79T-15246, y2 = 1.255TlnT. Plot y-T of the functions, and the intersection is the answer.

    7. A particular material has a latent heat of vaporization of 5000J/mol. This heat of vaporization does not change with temperature or pressure. One mole of the material exists in a two-phase equilibrium (liquid-vapor) in a container of volume V=1L, a temperature of 300K, and pressure of 1 atm. The container (constant volume ) is heated until the pressure reaches 2 atm. (Note that this is not a small P.) The vapor

    phase can be treated as an ideal monatomic gas and the molar volume of the liquid can be neglected relative to that of the gas. Find the fraction of material in the vapor phase in the initial and final states. (4.9, P118)
