What does the ideal gas law relate to?
The ideal gas law relates pressure, volume, the molar amount of the gas, and its temperature. It’s given by the equation: P is pressure of the gas in atmospheres (atm). V is volume of the gas in liters (L). n is the amount of gas in moles. T is the temperature of the gas in Kelvin (K).
What are the 4 variables in the ideal gas law?
The ideal gas law has four variables in it: moles, temperature, pressure, and volume. In this lesson, we will practice using the ideal gas law to calculate pressure, temperature and volume of gases.
Do real gases act like ideal gases at low temperatures?
At low temperatures, real gases act like ideal gases. The ideal gas law is an equation of state the describes the behavior of an ideal gas and also a real gas under conditions of ordinary temperature and low pressure.
What are the characteristics of an ideal gas?
An ideal gas is a gas where the gas particles are in a giant container bouncing into and off each other when they collide, like microscopic billiard balls. Also, the gas’s temperature and kinetic energy (energy of motion) are proportional. The ideal gas law relates pressure, volume, the molar amount of the gas, and its temperature.
