An equation of state is a relation between state variables It is a thermodynamic equation describing the state of matter under a given set of physical conditions. It is a constitutive equation which provides a mathematical relationship between two or more state functions associated with the matter, such as its temperature, pressure, volume, or internal energy. Equations of state are useful in describing the properties of fluids, mixtures of fluids, solids, and even the interior of stars.

Assumption: 1)the gas consists of a large number of molecules, which are in random motion and obey Newton's laws of motion; 2)the volume of the molecules is negligibly small compared to the volume occupied by the gas; and 3)no forces act on the molecules except during elastic collisions of negligible duration. PV = RT

The van der Waals equation may be considered as the ideal gas law, “improved” due to two independent reasons:  Molecules are thought as particles with volume, not material points. Thus V cannot be too little, less than some constant. So we get (V – b) instead of V.  We consider molecules attracting others within a distance of several molecules' radii  affects pressure  we get dengan (P + a/V 2 ) instead of P.

where V is molar volume The substance-specific constants a and b can be calculated from the critical properties P c, T c, and V c as

Principle of Corresponding States (PCS) The principle of Corresponding States (PCS) was stated by van der Waals and reads: “Substances behave alike at the same reduced states. Substances at same reduced states are at corresponding states.” Reduced properties provide a measure of the “departure” of the conditions of the substance from its own critical conditions and are defined as follows

The PCS says that all gases behave alike at the same reduced conditions. That is, if two gases have the same “relative departure” from criticality (i.e., they are at the same reduced conditions), the corresponding state principle demands that they behave alike. In this case, the two conditions “correspond” to one another, and we are to expect those gases to have the same properties.

Reduced form of vdW EOS: This equation is “universal”. It does not care about which fluids we are talking about. Just give it the reduced conditions “P r, T r ” and it will give you back V r — regardless of the fluid. As long as two gases are at corresponding states (same reduced conditions), it does not matter what components you are talking about, or what is the nature of the substances you are talking about; they will behave alike.

The compressibility factor at the critical point, which is defined as Z c is predicted to be a constant independent of substance by many equations of state; the Van der Waals equation e.g. predicts a value of 0.375Van der Waals equation

(determinant) Calculate:

Case 1:D > 0 1 real root and 2 imaginary roots Case 2:D = 0 three real roots and at least two are equal

Case 3:D < 0 three, distinct, real roots Where k = 0 for i = 1 k = 1 for i = 2 k = 2 for i = 3 The minus sign applies when B > 0, The plus sign applies when B < 0.

For mixtures, we apply the same equation, but we impose certain mixing rules to obtain “a” and “b”, which are functions of the properties of the pure components. We create a new “pseudo” pure substance that has the average properties of the mixture.
