literatm/K. The
RedlichKwong equation is more accurate than the Ideal Gas Law because it allows for
molecular interactions at high pressures.
a.
Create an Excel function, entitled PRK(V,T,Pc,Tc) which calculates the pressure
from the RedlichKwong equation. Make Pc and Tc optional arguments in PRK.
Use the critical properties of air as their defaults: Pc = 37.2 atm and Tc = 132.5
K.
b.
For air, plot pressure vs volume for the range 0.1 L/mol
≤
V
≤
10 L/mol for T =
100 K, 300K, and 500K.
You should have 3 lines on your plot, one for each
temperature.
After you have solved the problem, answer the following (for points).
