Ideal gasesEdit

Equation of stateEdit

An ideal gas has the following equation of state:

 

Where p is pressure, V is volume,   is number of moles observed,   J/(mol·K) is a universal gas constant.

The gas constant has a value of 8.314 J/(mol.K) or 0.0821 (L*atm)/(mol*K)

Kinetic theory of gasesEdit

Pressure of a gasEdit

let us consider n mole of an ideal gas is placed inside the cubical vessel of side l let the mass of each molecule is m and let it moves with velocity c1

Kinetic energy of a moleculeEdit
