This is a simple substitution into the partial differential. Wherein lies the difficulty?

$\displaystyle p = \frac{{nRT}}{{V  nb}}  a\frac{{{n^2}}}{{{V^2}}}$ $\displaystyle {\left( {\frac{{\partial p}}{{\partial T}}} \right)_V} = \frac{{nR}}{{V  nb}}  0$ $\displaystyle {\pi _T} = T{\left( {\frac{{\partial p}}{{\partial T}}} \right)_V}  p$ $\displaystyle {\pi _T} = T\left( {\frac{{nR}}{{V  nb}}} \right)  \left( {\frac{{nRT}}{{V  nb}}  a\frac{{{n^2}}}{{{V^2}}}} \right)$ $\displaystyle {\pi _T} = \frac{{TnR}}{{V  nb}}  \frac{{nRT}}{{V  nb}} + a\frac{{{n^2}}}{{{V^2}}} = a\frac{{{n^2}}}{{{V^2}}}$ as required
