Problem 1. (20 points) A gas obeys the equation of state: z =r+w-!-lL " RT'V (a) Suppose that n moles of this gas undergoes an isothermal, reversible expansion or compression from volume Vlto volume V1. Calculate the work done on the gas for this process. (b) Consider your answer to (a) for the case of a compression (W< V,). At low temperatures (as low as you please), compare the work to that associated with compressing an ideal gas. Is it greater, less or the same? Interpret your answer in terms of intermolecular forces. (a) se = (r -pdv : o f'o -pcr JV.
