The question I'm stuck on is: P = NKBT/(V-Nb) - aN2/(V2) -----> (1) Re-arrange variables in the Van Der Waals equation of state, Eq. (1), so that V always appears in the equation as V/(3Nb) and P appears as 27b2P/a. Then T should appear in the combination 27b kBT/(8a). Call these dimensionless combinations v, p, and t (also called reduced variables), and express the van der Waals equation in terms of v, p, and t. I managed to get P to appear as 27b2P/a and T to appear as 27bKbT/8a using algebra and getting some pretty ugly terms along the way that are floating around but with V appearing multiple times in the initial equation I can't for the life of me get it to appear the way the question wants me to. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
