# How do you calculate second virial coefficient?

## How do you calculate second virial coefficient?

(P + an2/V2)(V – nb) = nRT ; This equation relates the second-virial coefficient (B) of a gas to the van der Waals constants (a,b): B = b – a/RT , and predicts that the second virial coefficient of a gas should be negative at low temperatures, becoming less negative and possibly positve with increasing temperature.

## What is 2nd virial coefficient?

The second virial coefficient describes the contribution of the pair-wise potential to the pressure of the gas. The third virial coefficient depends on interactions between three molecules, and so on and so forth.

**What is the second virial coefficient of CO2?**

-73.2

From literature however, the compressibility factor of CO2 at this temperature is 0.274, showing an error of 2.1%. This error is within allowable limit. Subsequently the second virial coefficient was deduced to be -73.2 as compared with the value of -72.2 contained in literature.

**What is Kammerlingh Onnes equation?**

The most general equation relating P, V and T of a gas is that due to the Dutch physicist, Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (1901) and is written as; PV = RT [1 + BT/V + CT/V2.

### What is the value of 2nd virial coefficient at Boyle temperature?

equal to zero

So it can be concluded that at the Boyle temperature, the second virial coefficient B is equal to zero.

### Is the second virial coefficient negative?

2. Second virial coefficient dependency on the ionic strength of the protein-influenced solution. When the ionic strength of the protein-influenced solution is less than the bulk ionic strength (α < 1), as is the case for the OVA and BSA solutions, the second virial coefficient is positive.

**What is the value of 1st virial coefficient?**

1

The compressibility factor is a dimensionless quantity, indicating how much a real fluid deviates from an ideal gas. A is the first virial coefficient, which has a constant value of 1. It makes the statement that at low density, all fluids behave like ideal gases.

**What is Boyle’s temperature formula?**

The value of Boyle’s temperature for a real gas is (TB=Rba).
