🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Atwood's class at UB.

Explain the negative deviation from ideal gas behavior of N_{2} below 300 atm in the figure on the left.

In this problem, we are asked to **explain the negative deviation from the ideal gas behavior of N _{2} below 300 atm**.

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

This is the **c****ompressibility 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:
