B = 2bT /V , where a and b are constants and V is the molar volume. Show that the

equation of state is:

V = bT

^{2}- aP + constant

To be honest I'm not entirely sure what I'm actually supposed to be doing with this question. Do I treat it as an ideal gas and therefore use that equation or is that completely wrong.

So far I have integrated each of the equations in respect to T, giving me,

(integral of) a/V dT = aT/V + c

(integral of) 2bT/V dT = bT^2/V + c

But now I'm stuck and can't seem to find a relevant relationship between P and what I've got there.
