Q6.
The ideal gas law is given by
where where p is the pressure, v is the specific volume, R is the
universal gas constant, and T is the absolute temperature.
This equation is only accurate for a limited range of pressure and
temperature. Vander Waals came up with an equation that was accurate for
larger ranges of pressure and temperature given by
where a and b are
empirical constants dependent on a particular gas. Given the value of
R=0.08, a=3.592, b=0.04267, p=10 and T=300 (assume all units are consistent), one is
going to find the specific volume, v, for the above values. Without
finding the solution from the Vander Waals equation, what would be a good
initial guess for v?
