For an ambient separation process where the feed and products

For an ambient separation process where the feed and products are all nonideal liquid solutions at the infinite surroundings temperature, To, (4) of Table 2.1 for the minimum work of separation reduces to
For the liquid-phase separation at ambient conditions (298 K, 101.3 kPa) of a 35 mol% mixture of acetone (1) in water (2) into 99 mol% acetone and 98 mol% water products, calculate the minimum work in kJ/kmol of feed. Liquid-phase activity coefficients at ambient conditions are correlated reasonably well by the van Laar equations with A12, = 2.0 and A21 = 1.7. What would the minimum rate of work be if acetone and water formed an ideal liquidsolution,?
