The compressibility factor for an ideal gas is a. 1.5 b. 1.0 c. 2.0 d. ?

Compressibility factor of an ideal gas is the correction factor used to describe the deviation of a real gas behaviour from ideal gas

It is denoted by Z

For an Ideal gas the compressibility factor will always be unity = 1

Z = pV/nRT

The value of Z increases with pressure and decreases with temperature
