Ideal Gas Law

  • An approximation to help us model and predict the behaviour of gases
  • Refers to hypothetical gas composed of molecules that follow a few rules:
    1. Ideal gas molecules do not attract or repel each other
    2. Ideal gas molecules themselves take up no volume


$PV = nRT$

  • $P$ --> pressure
  • $V$ --> volume
  • $T$ --> temperature
  • $R$ --> gas constant
  • $n$ --> number of moles of the gas
