T: temperature [K]

(iii)        y1,azeo =aT**2+bT+c  (0 deg C < T < 121 deg C)

a=-5.2209835

b=0.002462834

c=0.48346497

T: temperature [deg C]

 

              The values, T and y1,azeo, denote temperature and y1 value of azeotropic mixture where y1 is the composition of component 1 in the vapor phase.
