it would be the one with the highest boiling point. You can figure this out by thinking about their respective van der waals intermolecular forces, higher forces = higher bp.

@aaronq if the mixture is cooled, the molecule with the lowest BP will liquefy first, not the highest.

I agree with aaronq... The molecule with the highest BP will vaporize last when heated but liquifies first when cooled. Molecules with the lowest BP will vaporize first but liquify last when cooled.

so it is butane @thomaster

Boiling Points: methane: 109-113 K ethane: 185 K propane: 231-231 K butane: 272-274 K So I guess you're right
