© Beyond Labz , all rights reserved 5-4: Derivation of the Ideal Gas Law An ideal gas is a hypothetical gas whose pressure, volume, and temperature follow the relationship PV = nRT . Ideal gases do not actually exist, although all real gases can behave like an ideal gas at certain temperatures and pressures. All gases can be described to some extent using the Ideal Gas Law, and it is important in our understanding of how all gases behave. In this assignment, you will derive the Ideal Gas Law from experimental observations. The state of any gas can be described using the four variables: pressure ( P ), volume ( V ), temperature ( T ), and the number of moles of gas ( n ). Each experiment in Virtual ChemLab: Gases allows three of these variables (the independent variables) to be manipulated or changed and shows the effect on the remaining variable (the dependent variable). 1. Start Virtual ChemLab, select Gas Properties, and then select Ideal Gas Law from the list of assignments. The lab will open in the Gases laboratory.
