Question

# The given graph in Fig represents the variation of Z (compressibility factor=pVnRT) vs.P , for the three real gases A,B and C.identify the only incorrect statement 1−pbRT For the gas B,b=0 and its dependence on p is linear at all pressures. For the gas C, which is typical real gas which neither a nor b=0.By konowing the minima and the point of intersection with z=1,a and b can be calculated.  At high pressure,the slope is positive for all real gases.  For the gas A,a=0 and its dependence on p is linear at all pressures

Solution

## The correct option is B For the gas C, which is typical real gas which neither a nor b=0.By konowing the minima and the point of intersection with z=1,a and b can be calculated.  B relates to the incompressible volume of the molecules and measures the effective size of gas molecules. Z=pVRT=1 for an ideal gas. Note : options  (A) , (B) and (D) are well established Eliminating the right statements, option C is the required Answer C must be incorrect
