The Boiling Level of Carbon Tetrachloride (CCl4)
Carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) is a chemical compound that was as soon as used as a dry cleansing solvent. Nonetheless, it was discovered to be carcinogenic and is not used for this goal. With the intention to decide the boiling level of CCl4, details about its vapor stress and enthalpy of vaporization is required. At 57.8 °C, the vapor stress of CCl4 is 54.0 kPa, and its enthalpy of vaporization is 33.05 kJ/mol (Henderson, 2017). Realizing this info, the traditional boiling level of CCl4 will be estimated. The traditional boiling level of a substance is the temperature at which the vapor stress of the liquid and the ambiance are equal. With the intention to estimate the traditional boiling level of CCl4, the Clausius-Clapeyron equation can be utilized. This equation is used to calculate the change within the vapor stress of a liquid with temperature (Lide, 2018). The equation will be rearranged to calculate the boiling level of a liquid given the vapor stress and enthalpy of vaporization.
