College Chemistry : Non-Ideal Gas Behavior

Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Non Ideal Gas Behavior

One flask is at STP and another is at .  What is the pressure at ?

Explanation:

The pressure of the flask at  is .

Because the volume between the flasks and the moles in each flask are constant, we can cancel out  and .

At STP, conditions are  and .

Example Question #1 : Gases

A 3.00 L container at 273 K is filled with 1.00 mol Cl2(g), which behaves non-ideally.

Using the van der Waals equation, calculate pressure exerted by the gas.
