Patterned Border Template 2 Purdue University School of Mechanical Engineering Lecture Topics • Virial equations of state. • Configuration integrals. • Evaluation of virial coefficients using the Lennard-Jones potential. • Discussion of the second virial coefficient. • Configuration integral for the Van der Waals fluid. • Evaluation of thermodynamic properties for the VDW fluid.
Patterned Border Template 3 Purdue University School of Mechanical Engineering The Virial Equation of State • The virial equation of state for a real gas arises out of the pressure relation developed for the grand canonical partition function: ln B Pk T  • The grand canonical partition function (for a single species) is given by: where  ,, 00 exp / exp / N Ni B B N i NE k T Ek T          exp / B kT  • The canonical partition function for an assembly with N particles is given by:     , e x p / B i QT N E 

Patterned Border Template 5 Purdue University School of Mechanical Engineering The Configuration Integrals • For systems with more than one particle ( N >1) the energy of the system can be separated into the energy of the individual particles and the energy associated with intermolecular forces between the particles: • The term is the configurational energy. The partition functions Q ( N,T, ) are then written    * 12 ** () , , , ,....... , ii N i i independent part ET N E r r r EE     , ,....... , N rr r      1 2 ,, e x p / exp / exp , ,....... , / Ni B i iin dpa r t B N B all quantum states QN T E kT Ek T r r r k T  

Patterned Border Template 6 Purdue University School of Mechanical Engineering The Configuration Integrals • We have already dealt with the first term in the final summation involving individual, independent particles. The first term gives us: • The configurational energy part of the summation is replaced by an integration over all possible positions for the individual particles:  * exp / !
