Step 1

Part (a)

Assume that the molar holdup (H) of the given stage is constant and the molar overflow which occurs is also constant. Therefore, Lo = L1 and V2 = V1. Thus, from the given first equation,

Step 2

Now, apply this in the second given equation as shown below.

Step 3

Apply Tylor series expansion on the given equation of y1 ...
