It turns out that the van der Waals constant b equals four
times the total volume actually occupied by the molecules
of a mole of gas. Using this figure, calculate the fraction of
the volume in a container actually occupied by Ar atoms
(b) at 20.27 MPa pressure and 0 °C. (Assume for
simplicity that the ideal-gas equation still holds.)
