Forces Continued: When comparing a real gas to an
ideal gas, a very helpful tool is compressibility, Z = VmP/RT.
If Z = 1, the gas is behaving identically to an ideal
gas. If Z > 1, the gas is dominated by repulsive
forces, and if Z < 1, the gas is dominated by
We briefly described the 0th law and began talking about work. I will wait to summarize work until after Thursday's class.
