Question details

5. (25 pts) At 423 K, water gas (steam) has a second virial coefficient of -275.0 cm3 mor1. If 1.00 mol H20 is expanded from 1000 cm3 to 2000 cm3 reversibly and isothermally at 423 K, calculate (a) the work done following a two-term virial equation of state and (b) the work done if the gas were ideal. Explain briefly ( 30 words) how the strong hydrogen bonds in water may account for the differences in work.
