calculate the van dar waals coorectionj terms to pressure and volume for Cl2 at STP. The values of the van der waals constant a and b are 6.49L2atm/mol2 and 0.056L/mol, respectively, for Cl2. At STP, which is the major cause of deviation from ideal behavior, the volume of the Cl2 molecules or the attrractive forces betweem them? Why?
