Homework Help: Chemical potential for van de Waarls gas

  1. Apr 1, 2014 #1
    Hello,
    In my book, we have two equations to find the chemical potential
    µj=(dF/dNj) T, V and N constants

    and

    µj=-kT ln (ζj/Nj)

    We calculated the potential of a Van der Waals gas using each of these equations, but the result is not the same, i want to understand why ?
