As I said last time, "Trial and error might be the best approach". You
can make a guess in the following way. The total volume is the volume of
the solution and the volume of the vapor. For a given number of vapor
atoms at known temperature and pressure you can use the ideal gas law to
find the gas volume. For a given amount of solution you can determine
the volume from the density. This lets you choose V as as function of n
- though how you choose a partition of n over the two phases is your

I didn't mention a box, and under PBC whatever distinction you're trying
to draw is probably irrelevant.
