## Homework Statement

Derive the energy equation for a van der Waal gas when T and v are the independent variables.

## Homework Equations

I'm required to start from: [itex]du=\frac{\partial u}{\partial T} dT +\frac{\partial u}{\partial v} dv[/itex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

We'll when I first started this problem. I just started doing random derivatives that made sense to me but after looking it over I had no clue what I was doing.

Does anyone know what the answer I should be getting after I fully derive it?
