Van Der Waals Equation Calculator – Accurate Results

This tool calculates the pressure, volume, or temperature of real gases using the Van der Waals equation.

Van der Waals Equation Calculator

This calculator uses the Van der Waals equation to calculate the real gas behavior. The Van der Waals equation is:

(P + a(n/V)²)(V – nb) = nRT

Where:

  • P = Pressure
  • V = Volume
  • T = Temperature
  • n = Number of moles
  • a and b are Van der Waals constants specific to each gas
  • R = Universal gas constant

How to Use the Calculator

Input the values for pressure (P), volume (V), temperature (T), number of moles (n), and the Van der Waals constants (a and b). Click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

How the Calculation Works

The Van der Waals equation adjusts the Ideal Gas Law to account for the finite size of molecules and the intermolecular forces between them. The equation is solved by rearranging it to find the value of interest.

Limitations

The Van der Waals equation has limitations when applied to real gases over a wide range of temperatures and pressures. It works best for gases at moderate temperature and pressure and may not be accurate for gases under extreme conditions.
