Vapor-liquid equilibrium, second edition covers the theoretical principles and methods of calculation of equilibrium conditions from various experimental data and the elements of measuring technique, as well as the instruments for the direct determination of the equilibrium compositions of the liquid and vapor phases of the system.

To calculate vapor-liquid equilibria for multicomponent nonideal systems, the phase equilibrium, eqs (6), are usually presented in the same form as eq (9) however, in contrast to the ideal case (eq (10)), for this case distribution coefficients depend not only on temperature and pressure but also on phase composition. Vapour liquid equilibria distillation columns are designed based on the boiling point properties of the components in the mixtures being separated thus the sizes, particularly the height, of distillation columns are determined by the vapour liquid equilibrium (vle) data for the mixtures.
For examples, binary vapour–liquid equilibrium can be estimated from the liquid activity coefficients calculated from mutual solubility data for the same mixture, and the infinite-dilution activity coefficients measured from gas–liquid chromatography can be used to predict the vapour–liquid equilibria over the complete concentration range. Prediction of vapour–liquid equilibria although vapour–liquid equilibria have been investigated for more than 10,000 systems, values resulting from various combinations are still unknown it would be impractical to determine experimentally all the systems needed individually.
If the atmospheric pressure is higher than the vapor pressure, the liquid will not boil vapor pressure is strongly temperature-dependent water at 100°c has a vapor pressure of 1 atmosphere, which explains why water on earth (which has an atmosphere of about 1 atm) boils at 100°c.
