The van der Waals equation for real gases recognizes that
(A) the molecular atrractions between paritcles of a gas decreases the pressure exerted by the gas
(B) the nonzero volumes of gas particles effectively decrease the amount of "empty space" between them
(C) gas particles have nonzero volumes and interact with one another
(D) molar volumes of gases of different types are different
(E) All of the above statements are correct
would the correct answer be (E)?
