Van der Waals’ Corresponding States Principle states “fluids at the same reduced pressures and temperatures have the same reduced volume.” As long as two gases are at corresponding states (same reduced conditions), it does not matter what components we are talking about, or what is the nature of the substances we are talking about; they will behave alike.
