Chemistry 350 Assignment 1 Solutions September 29, 2004 1. Use both the van der Waals equation and the Redlich-Kwong equation to plot the compress- ibility factor Z against P for ethane at 360 and 500 K. Hint: Calculate Z as a function of V and P as a function of V , then plot Z vs. P . Answer: As noted in class, you can express each of these equations of state in terms of V for both Z and P . For the van der Waals equation of state, P = RT V - b - a V 2 and Z = V V - b - a RT V and for the Redlich-Kwong equation of state, P = RT V - B - A T 1 / 2 V ( V + B ) and Z = V V - B - A RT 3 / 2 ( V + B ) Plotting these two properties, Z versus P , provides highly curved functions. These are depicted below. van der Waals

Redlich-Kwong
Some values for the molar volume may give negative pressures, which is physically unreason- able. However, it signifies a superheated liquid . Recall that we discussed PV isotherms which follow a cubic equation for each of these equations of state. The first “dip” in that cubic

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
