using the van der Waals equation calculate the pressur exterted by .5160 mol N2 in a 1L container at 24.6C

What's the problem here? Do you need to know the formula? Something about the formula you don't understand? Do you have the values for the constants, a and b? It's straight forward, plug and chug!

i don't know where to find the constant values for a and b

For N2, a = 1.39 L^2atm/mol^2
b = 0.0391 L/mol
