## Fenske equation
The ## Additional recommended knowledgeThe equation was derived by Merrell Fenske in 1932 This is one of the many different but equivalent versions of the Fenske equation:
For ease of expression, the more volatile and the less volatile components are commonly referred to as the If the relative volatility of the light key to the heavy key is constant from the column top to the column bottom, then α
The above Fenske equation can be modified for use in the total reflux distillation of multi-component feeds. ## Another form of the Fenske equationA derivation of another form of the Fenske equation for use in gas chromatography is available on the U.S. Naval Academy's web site.
