    Suppose that Beta = (v-a)/T and kappa = 3(v-a)/4P

    Show that the equation of state is

    P^3/4 (v-a) = AT,

    Where a and A are constants.

    SOLUTION This solution is FREE courtesy of BrainMass!

    Given: κ = -1/V dV/dP = (3(V-a))/4P

    Given: β = 1/V dV/dT = ((V-a))/T

    Or, 1/a log V/((V-a))=log⁡(1/T)

    [HINT: On combining the above two equations the required equation of state is obtained]
