The ideal gas law for a gas at low temperature and pressure is P V = nRT , where P is pressure (in atm), V is volume (in L), T is temperature (in K), n is the number of moles of the gas, and R = 0.0820578 is the molar gas constant. The van der Waals equation

covers the nonideal case where these assumptions do not hold. Use the ideal gas law to compute an initial guess, followed by Newton’s Method applied to the van der Waals equation to find the volume of one mole of oxygen at 320 K and a pressure of 15 atm. For oxygen, a = 1.36 L2-atm/mole2 and b = 0.003183 L/mole. State your initial guess and solution with three significant digits
