  1. 1.

    A method has been developed for calculating the number of plates in a rectification column with crosscurrent flow of the vapor and liquid, for the liquid flowing in the same or in different directions on adjacent plates, and for different amounts of vapor mixing between the plates, which makes it possible to find the number of actual plates in the column and the way the vapor and liquid concentrations are distributed along the length of the column.

  2. 2.

    It is shown that the method of calculating the number of plates developed by Baker and Stockhardt is the special case of the method given in this paper for whichs= 1.
