Multicomponent Distillation

Prob (Ref Book by Coulson & Richardson): Find the bubble-point and the dew-
point temperatures and the corresponding vapour and liquid compositions for a
mixture of 33 mole precent n- hexane, 37 mole precent n-heptane and 30 mole precent
n-octane at 1.2 atm total pressure.

Given: Ki = xi Piv’ / P xi = Piv /P

And also a semi log plot vapours pressure versus temperature
Vapour pressure of K factors for n-paraffin differ by a factor of about 2.2 for
consecutive members of the series.
You may utilise following graph for vapour pressure data
