From the classical kinetic theory of gases we know the equation of state of the ideal gas, βp = n (see Chap. 1). For real gases, the interaction forces between the molecules lead to corrections to the ideal gas equation of state. We mention the classical theory by van der Waals and the systematic expansions with respect to density, called virial expansions.
