# Van der Waals equation

Chemistry Level pending

Using Van der Waals equation, calculate the compressibility of $$50.0$$ g of carbon dioxide in a $$1.00$$ L vessel at $$25.0$$ °C.

Use the following Van der Waals constants for carbon dioxide: $a = 3.592 \text{ atm L}^2 \text{ mol}^{-2}, b = 0.04267 \text{ L mol}^{-1}.$
