a) Calculate the pressure exerted by 0.5160 mol N2 in a 1.0000 L container at 24.6°C using the ideal gas law.

atm

(b) Calculate the pressure exerted by 0.5160 mol N2 in a 1.0000 L container at 24.6°C using the van der Waals equation.

atm

(c) Compare the results. (Write the percentage difference between the results, based on the higher value result.)

Surely you know how to do these. Perhaps you just want to know what answer I get but I don't have the time to work these things unless I have a reason. If you truly don't understand them, explain what kind of problem you are having.

For the van der Waals question I have 12.75 but I think only three s.f. are allowed so that would round to 12.7. Check my arithmetic.
