Question

# Which of the following are correct statements ?

A
van der Waals constant a is a measure of attractive force
B
van der Waals constant b is also called co-volume or excluded volume
C
b is expressed in L mol1
D
a is expressed in atm L2mol1

Solution

## The correct options are A van der Waals constant $$a$$ is a measure of attractive force B van der Waals constant $$b$$ is also called co-volume or excluded volume C $$b$$ is expressed in $$L\ mol^{-1}$$ D $$a$$ is expressed in $$atm\ L^{2} mol^{-1}$$Van der Waals constant $$a$$ is a indirect measure of attractive force. Gases with higher values of $$a$$ can be easily liquified.Van der Waals constant $$b$$ is also called co-volume or excluded volume. It is the effective volume of a gas. When gas molecules have constant value of $$b$$ over wider range of temperature and pressure, the gas molecules are incompressible.$$b$$ has units $$L \ mol^{-1}$$ or $$ml^3\ mol^{-1}$$. The units of $$a$$ are $$atm\ L^{2} \ mol^{-1}$$.Chemistry
