Homework Help: Cp and Cv of a Real Gas

  1. Dec 4, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello there,

    I was given a tasks to find Cp and Cv of nitrogen and carbon dioxide in real gas situation.

    2. Relevant equations

    From what i could find, the suitable equation would be:

    Cv = Cv° - (2(∂B/∂T) + T(∂²B/∂T²)P

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The problem is I couldn't find a way to solve the

    '(2(∂B/∂T) + T(∂²B/∂T²)P'

    part of equation. Any guidance will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    This is a differential equation of 2nd order. I myself don't know how to solve differential equation of 2nd order but you can use calculators to solve it.
