Match the following variables with their descriptions:

P (Pa) = Absolute pressure of the gas T (K) = Absolute temperature of the gas v (m3/kg) = Specific volume of the gas R (J/kg.K) = The gas constant

Match the following statements with the correct interpretation:

Z = 1 for ideal gases = Compressibility factor is unity for ideal gases Z can be greater or less than unity for real gases = Compressibility factor varies for real gases Z is determined from compressibility factor chart at Pr and Tr = Z values are obtained from a chart at reduced pressure and temperature f(gas, Pr, Tr) = Function to calculate Z based on gas type, reduced pressure, and temperature

Match the following expressions with their meanings:

Z = Vreal / Videal = Definition of compressibility factor Z Z = f(gas, Pr, Tr) = Expression to calculate Z based on gas type, reduced pressure, and temperature Z = 1 - 2a/v + b/v^2 = Van der Waals equation for compressibility factor Z Z = Pv/RT = Ideal gas law rearranged for compressibility factor Z

Match the following terms with their explanations:

Vreal = Volume when considering the volume of gas particles Videal = Volume when neglecting the volume of gas particles Pr = Reduced pressure used in determining Z Tr = Reduced temperature used in determining Z

Match the following concepts with their implications:

Z values from chart at Pr and Tr = Importance of reduced variables in obtaining Z for real gases Z = 1 for ideal gases = Characteristic of compressibility factor for ideal gases Z variations in real gases = Effect of gas behavior on compressibility factor Van der Waals equation for Z = Correction to ideal gas law for real gas behavior
