Plot isotherms for 5 moles of an ideal gas in the temperature range of 20 K to 400 K (with 20 K spacing in temperature). Choose the volume to vary from 0.1 L to 40 L.

Given that pV=nRT the volume vector is V=[0.1:0.1:40]/1000 temperature vector is T=[20:20:400] from the status equation p=nRT./V (mind ./ because they are vector and you want pointwise operation) then figure plot(T,p)
