Step 1

The equation of the state of a certain gas is given by equation (1), where,

T represents temperature of the gas.

P represents pressure of the gas.

ρ represents molar density of the gas.

kB is the isothermal compressibility.

b is a positive constant. Step 2

The compressibility factor is a correction factor used to determine the volume of a real gas. It is the ratio of volumes of a real and ideal gas, and is given as follows:

Step 3

For 1 mol of an ideal gas, the expression for Videal is determined from the ideal gas equation as shown:

Videal = RT/P                                                                      &nb...
