A gas described by van der Waals’ equation:
For a real gas
(P + an2/V2)(V – nb) = nRT
Volume large => a=0 and V-nb = V. Hence it reduces to PV = nRT
P large but V can’t be neglected. So, P(V-nb) = nRT
a and b are temperature independent.
For real gas a is not 0 but ideal gas has a = 0. Hence ideal gas exerts more pressure on the container walls.
From the above discussion, A, B and D are correct.

Calculate the pressure exerted by one mole of CO2 gas at 273 K, if the van der Waals’ constant ‘a’ = 3.592 dm6 atm mol–2. Assume that the volume occupied by CO2 molecules is negligible.
According to the Van der Waal’s equation we have for one mole of a gas:
[P + a/V2] (V - b) = RT ….(1)
R = 0.082 , T = 273K, V = 22.4 l for 1 mole of an ideal gas at 1 atm pressure.
[P + (3.592 L2 atm/mol2 ) (1.0 mol)2 /(22.4 L)2 ] [22.4 L – (1.0 mol)(0.04267 L/mol)] = (1.0 mol)(0.08206 L atm/mol K)(0+273 K)
P = 0.082 *273/22.4 – 3.592/(22.4)4
When 2 g of a gas A is introduced into an evacuated flask kept at 25°C, the pressure is found to be one atmosphere. If 3 g of another gas B is then added to the same flask, the total pressure becomes 1.5 atm. Assuming ideal gas behaviour, calculate the ratio of the molecule weights MA : MB.
we know that pressure is proportional to the number of moles present.
when pressure was 1 atm, no. of moles = 2/a moles
when pressure was 1.5 atm, no. of moles = (2/a + 3/b) moles

A 4 : 1 molar mixture of He and CH4 is contained in a vessel at 20 bar pressure. Due to a hole in the vessel, the gas mixture leaks out. What is the composition of the mixture effusing out initially.
Total moles = 4+1 =5, Total pressure = 20 bars
So, partial pressure of He = 4/5 x 20 = 16 bar
Or, partial pressure of CH4 = 20-16 = 4 bar
Now, molar mass of He = 4, molar mass of CH4 = 16
So, ratio of rate of effusion of He (rHe) and rate of effusion of methane (rCH4) will be:
Hence, as the rate of effusion of He is 8 times higher than CH4 so, initial mixture must contain the molar ratio of He: CH4 to be 8:1.

A stream of oxygen molecules at 500 K exists from a pin-hole in an over and strikes a slit that selects the molecules travelling in a specific direction. Given that the pressure outside the over is 2.5 × 10–7 atm, estimate the maximum distance at which the slit must be placed from the pin-hole in order to produce a collimated beam to oxygen, (Radius of O2 = 1.8 × 10–10 m).
The compression factor (compressibility factor) for one mole of a van der Waal’s at 0oC and 100 atmospheric pressure is found to be 0.5. Assuming that the volume of a gas molecule is negligible, calculate the van der Waals constant a.
We know that, Compressibility factor, Z = PV/RT
0.5 = 100 *V/0.082 *273
∴ V = 0.1117L
NOTE : Further when volume of a gas molecule is negligible, van der Waal’s equation becomes
(P + a/V2) (V - 0) = RT
Or PV = RT – a/V or a = RTV – PV2
Substituting the values
A = (0.082 * 0.1119 *273) – (100 * 0.1119 * 0.1119)
= 1.253 atm L2 mol-2
