In the diagram, you had to distill of the solvent (with a low boiling point) from butanone
since the solvent had a low boiling point, it could easily be distilled!
continuous or simultaneous distillation is where you place the condenser horizontally
Reflux is where you DONT allow the product to escape, so you place the condenser vertically, and you continuously HEAT it.
After you have the product, you separarte it by distillation
In the experiment given, they chose another method instead of reflux, the sulfuric acid was added from a burette. But the separation step is still distillation!
