Vapour pressures of pure acetone and chloroform at 328 K are 741.8 mm Hg and 632.8 mm Hg respectively. Assuming that they form ideal solution over the entire range of composition, plot $p_{total}, p_{chloroform}$, and $p_{acetone}$ as a function of $x_{acetone}$. The experimental data observed for different compositions of mixture is:

Plot this data also on the same graph paper. Indicate whether it has positive deviation or negative deviation from the ideal solution.

As the plot for $P_{total}$ dips downwards hence the solution shows negative deviation from the ideal behavior.
