Vapor-Liquid Equilibrium Calculator for Chloroform/Acetone/Methanol Mixture

Consider a ternary mixture of chloroform, acetone, and methanol at . The vapor-liquid equilibrium (VLE) behavior is described by a modified form of Raoult's law with activity coefficients predicted by the Wilson model [1].
This mixture presents four azeotropes, whose compositions and boiling points are:

This Demonstration displays the bubble point or the dew point temperature distributions in the form of density plots in the ternary diagram.
You can drag the locator to display the corresponding vapor and liquid compositions, as well as the bubble or dew temperatures.
Data shown in red is determined from the locator's position while data shown in blue is computed using VLE equilibrium rules.
