(c) Compute the latent heat of the boiling transition along this line. For this you will need to compute the entropy in the liquid and gaseous states; in doing this keep in mind that the order parameter m also has a non-vanishing temperature derivative. (d) Compute the isothermal compressibility κ T = - (1 /V )( ∂V/∂P ) T as a function of P and T . What is the behavior of κ T as we approach the critical end-point at P = P c and T = T c along different directions ? 4. For a gas obeying the Dieterici equation of state P ( v - b ) = k B T exp - a k B Tv (6) where v = 1 is the volume per particle, compute the value of Pv/ ( k B T ) at critical end-point of the liquid gas transition, and compare the result with that of the van der Waals equation of state. 3
