ChBE 2110 Practice Questions for Final Exam Fall 2007 Professor Gallivan From Elliott and Lira: o 7.2, Derive in terms of Z(,T) o 7.6 o 7.25, Instead of Peng-Robinson, use (1) methane chart, (2) ideal gas law (cp/R = 4.298, and (3) the van der Waals equation . o Suppose you are given a cubic equation of state of the form P = f(V,T) and coefficients for the Antoine equation. Explain how you would construct a phase diagram based on this information. Be sure to make a sketch. Explain how you will find the critical point. Attempt to work these in 2 hours. You may use any tables in the text, but try not to refer to the remainder of the text since the exam will be closed book. Since you can bring 3 single sided pagse of notes to the exam, you may wish to make these sheets first and use them to take the practice exam. (And presumably then revise it after taking the practice exam.) We will discuss these questions in the office hour review session on Friday at 5 pm. ...

    Excerpt: ... States of Matter: I Real Gases By the end of this lecture you will be able to: (1) Differentiate between real and ideal gases. (2) Understand how the ideal gas law can be modified to account for the differences. (3) State and manipulate the van der Waals equation . (4) Know what intermolecular forces and dipole moments are. (5) Correlate the dipole moment of a molecule to its intramolecular bonding. (6) Know what polar covalent bonds are and their relationship to electronegativity. (7) Understand attractive forces between non-polar molecules. (8) Understand how the size, polarity and symmetry of molecules correlate with the van der Waals equation . (1) What is a real gas? All gases are real gases. The ideal gas is simply a concept and does not actually exist. Real gases behave like the ideal gas at low pressure and high temperature. In real gases: (a) Molecules have significant volume. (b) There are significant forces between molecules. The ideal gas equation can be modified to account for thes ...

Real Gases van der Waals Equation of State Real molecules have intermolecular forces: attractive & repulsive. Repulsive forces are due to the finite volume of gas molecules - when they contact they repel, thus effective volume that gas molecules have access to is lowered: V V-nb where b = the van der Waals repulsive parameter in L mol-1 . Attractive forces reduce the pressure P nRT/V - a(n/V)2 . a = van der Waals repulsive parameter in units of atm L2 mol-2 . Thus va ...

    Excerpt: ... nd particle interaction can no longer be ignored, and the equation of state deviates from the ideal gas law. The real gas is described by the van der Waals equation of state: a (P + 2 )(v - b) = RT v Remark 1: note that v in the equation is the molar volume v = V /n. Remark 2: for a dilute gas at not very low temperature, a 0, b 0, the Van Der Waals equation is reduced to the ideal gas law. Example 2: intermolecular forces and the "touch-on" distance between gas particles *Example 3: thermodynamic properties (specific heats, internal energy, entropy, and adiabatic process) of a real gas (Fermi 16) Note that, unlike an ideal gas, for a real gas, the internal energy is a function of both temperature and volume. Taking T and V as independent variables, it can be generally written dE = E E )V dT + )T dV T V The partial derivatives in the equation can be experimentally measured (such as heat capacities), or determined by the inter-relationship between macroscopic properties derived from thermodynamic laws and e ...
