The pressure exerted by an ideal gas molecule is given as P = MC2/3V
where M is the mass of the gas,
C is the r.m.s velocity of the gas molecules, and
V is the volume of the gas
IDEAL GAS LAW
The pressure, P, volume V, and temperature T of an ideal gas are related by a simple formula called the ideal gas law. Ideal gases are defined as having molecules of negligible size with an average molar kinetic energy depends only on temperature.
PV = nRT
- P is the pressure of the gas,
- V is the volume taken up by the gas
- T is the temperature of the gas,
- R is the gas constant, and
- n is the number of moles of the gas.
