What is Raoult’s law? For what kind of calculations is Raoult’s law useful?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Raoult’s Law:

Raoult’s Law states that at given temperature, vapor pressure of a component is equal to the mole fraction of that component multiplied by the vapor pressure of that component in the pure state.

The law can be expressed as;
