The Ideal Gas Equation PV = nRT Before we look at the Ideal Gas Equation, let us state the four gas variables and one constant for a better understanding. The four gas variables are: pressure (P), volume (V), number of mole of gas (n), and temperature (T). Lastly, the constant in the equation shown below is R, known as the the gas constant, which will be discussed in depth further later: pV NRT PV 1 NRT Another way to describe an ideal gas is to describe it in mathematically. Consider the following equation: The term is also called the compression factor and is a measure of the ideality of the gas. An ideal gas will always equal 1 when plugged into this equation. The greater it deviates from the number 1, the more it will behave like a real gas rather than an ideal. A few things should always be kept in mind when working with this equation, as you may find it extremely helpful when checking your answer after working out a gas ...
