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

$PV = nRT$

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