Unformatted text preview: under the assumption of an ideal gas. (b) Calculate the work required if we assume the virial equation below. Use the initial and nal volumes from part (a). If you cannot solve part (a) calculate the work for decreasing volume by a factor of 10 for partial credit. Do not iterate. pV RT = 1 + B V + C V 2 with B =-10 . 3 10-6 m 3 mole and C = 1 . 517 10-9 m 6 mole 2 . 4. (7 points) Methyl chloride at 373 K (100 C) has the following virial coecients B =-242 . 5cm 3 / mol , C = 25 . 2 10 3 cm 6 mol-2 . Calculate the work of an isothermal reversible compression of 1 mole from 100 kpa to 5 Mpa. (a) Use the virial equation in volume Z = 1 + B V + C V 2 (b) Use the pressure variant of the virial equation Z = 1 + B P + c p 2 B = B RT , C = C-B 2 ( RT ) 2...
