1. You are given a substance that is equally soluble in water and hexane (two immiscible solvents). a) What is Kp? b) If you start with 10 g of the substance dissolved in 100 mL of water and are given 100 mL of hexane to extract with, algebraically show that it is better to do two smaller extractions using 50 mL of hexane for each extraction than it is to do one extraction using 100 mL of hexane.
