Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Alicia on Sunday, December 30, 2007 at 6:43pm.

I have a problem that states:
Find the pressure of a sample of carbon tetrachloride, CCl4 if 1.00 mol occupies 35.0L at 77.0 degress C (slightly above its normal boiling point). Assume that CCl4 obeys (a) the ideal gas law; (b) the van der Waals equation. The van der Waals constants for CCl4 are a= 20.39(L^2)(atm)/mol^2 and b= 0.1383L/mol.

I tried to do the problems and the answers I got are (a)=.814atm and (b)=.800atm but the back of the book is telling me that (a)=0.821atm an (b)=0.805. I'm not sure if i'm wrong or if the book is off.
