For the first part of the experiment the fractionating column was set up and a 25-mL sample of toluene and ethyl acetate was prepared and placed into a round beaker. The Bunsen burner was turned on and the mixture was heated to a boil. The vapor from the boiling mixture condensed in the condenser and was collected in a 50-ml graduated cylinder. As the first drop of substance was collected the temperature at that instant was recorded and corresponded with the first 1-mL of substance collected.

For the second part of the experiment simple distillation was used. The process
