Calculate the pressure that ccl4 will exert at 40 of 1.00 mol occupies 28.0 L, assuming that
(a) CCl4 obeys the idealgas equation
(b) CCl4 obeys the Van der Waals equation.
(a) PV = nRT
P = nRT / V
(b) (P + n^2a/V^2)(V  nb) = nRT
CCl4 =
a = 20.4 L^2atm/mol^2
b = 0.1383 L/mol

You have not said if the temperature is 40 C or 40 K. In either case, they have given you the equations and the numbers to plug in, to solve for P
Why not finish the problem yourself? You are the one who is supposed to be getting an education.

Its 40 C. Therefore, the equations are right then. Okay thanks
