In this problem, we are asked to explain the negative deviation from the ideal gas behavior of N2 below 300 atm.

The deviation from the ideal gas behavior is expressed introducing a factor in the ideal gas equation.

This is the compressibility factor (Z) which is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Z}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{PV}}{\mathbf{nRT}}}$

Where:
For ideal gas:  Z = 1
For real gas: Z 1

In the case of real gases:
