Negative Pressures in Van der Waals Equation of State

You can have a stretched liquid to some degree. The same way as pulling a solid body in all directions creates stresses that can have negative trace, you can stretch a liquid, which then holds ...

Metering Device decreases pressure yet produces saturated liquid?

As you stated: If we reduce the atmospheric pressure (e.g. from 14.7 PSIA to 0.33 PSIA) and if we put the water into a vacuum (e.g. from 29.6 inHg to 0.68 inHg), then we can change the state of the ...

Cubic nature of van der Waals' gas equation

The van der Waals equation describes the isotherms of a gas with respect to pressure and volume. The first van der Waals root (the first solution of the cubic equation) will give you the dew point, ...

Balanced reaction to Cr given H+

The half-equations are : $$\ce{Cr -> Cr^{3+} + 3 e-}$$ $$\ce{2 H+ + 2 e- -> H2}$$ So doubling the first and multiplying the second by $3$ and adding the results gives the final equation : $$\ce{...
