Ideal Gases Ideal Gases An “ideal” gas exhibits certain theoretical properties. Specifically, an ideal gas … Obeys all of the gas laws under all conditions. Does not condense into a liquid when cooled. Shows perfectly straight lines when its V and T & P and T relationships are plotted on a graph. In reality, there are no gases that fit this definition perfectly. We assume that gases are ideal to simplify our calculations. We have done calculations using several gas laws (Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, Combined
The Ideal Gas Law The Ideal Gas Law PV = nRT P = Pressure (in kPa) V = Volume (in L) T = Temperature (in K) n = moles R = 8.31 kPa • L K • mol R is constant. If we are given three of P, V, n, or T, we can solve for the unknown value. Recall, From Boyle’s Law:
