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

Formula

PV=nRTPV = nRT

  • PP --> pressure
  • VV --> volume
  • TT --> temperature
  • RR --> gas constant
  • nn --> number of moles of the gas
