Unformatted text preview: Lecture 3 1 Virial Coefficients (16.5) Recall from the past two lectures: Compressibility Factor PV Z RT = = ( 29 For 1 , Z<1 at a given pressure, suggests a significant drop in V from 'ideal' behavior. c R T T T ≈ ≈ 1 Expand Z as a polynomial in ( ): V ρ ( 29 ( 29 2 3 2 1 ... V V B T B T PV Z RT V V = = + + + This is the Virial Equation (virial - Latin for force). It was introduced in 1901 by Kamerlingh-Onnes for real gases. Notes : 1) Coefficients B 2V (T), B 3V (T) only depend on temperature for a given gas, not pressure. 2) B 2V (T)=B, B 3V (T)=C in other texts 2 nd virial coeff. 3 rd virial coeff.
