Ideal gases[edit]

Equation of state[edit]

An ideal gas has the following equation of state:


pV=\nu RT

Where p is pressure, V is volume, \nu=m/\mu is number of moles observed, R=N_Ak_B=6.022 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)
