1 ChE 320 Homework Professor Darrell Velegol Fall 2009 HW 02: Chapter 03 1 Starting with Eq 3.8 in Matsoukas, derive Eq 3.12, which is an equation for Z for many cubic EOS. 2 Solve the equation below using Newton’s Method. Plot the function, showing the two zeroes (NOTE: Always plot equations! Your eye gives you a lot of insight!), and then show your steps on a few iterations. Plug the numbers back in to make sure that f(x) = 0. ( ) ( )0 20 2 3 =-= x exp . x x f answer: x = 0.6833, 1.8655. 3 Plot the reduced pressure (P/P
