Homework Help: Thermodynamics(Second Virial Coefficient of CO2)

  1. Jan 29, 2008 #1
    Experimental Physical Chemistry ,Experiment #4

    Any Help would be appreciated

    Is it possible for a gas to have a positive value of A2 at room temperature? If so which gas comes to mind?

    What are the advantages of having Ve > Vs ? Are there any advantages to having Ve < Vs

    Why must the entire apparatus be immersed in a constant-temp bath

    Which component limits the accuracy(and precision) of the experimental setup?

    In this experiment it is assumed that the total number of moles of gas is constant throughout the series of expansions. What would the data look like if there was a small leak in the sample cylinder?
