    Molecular Thermodynamics

    Hi guys,
    This is a molecular thermodynamics problem:
    can anybody help me on solving this problem?

    The vapor phase properties of propane are quite well correlated with a Lennard-
    Jones potential. Adjust the two Lennard-Jones parameters of methane to the
    following experimental data
    B / cm3=mol T = K
    -393. 296.
    -244. 370.
    -163. 444.
    -111. 518.
    -76. 592.
    20. 1109.
    Typical values for the energy parameter epsilon/k are in the order of magnitude 10^2K;
    for typical values are in the range of several A. Document your calculation in
    a concise way to make it reproducible.

    2. Relevant equations
    Adjust the two Lennard-Jones parameters of methane to the
    above experimental data, Document your calculation in
