asked in category: General Last Updated: 11th January, 2020# What is the equation of state for an ideal gas?

**nRT**. It is a result of combination of Boyle's and Charles's laws.

**Boyle's law**states that at constant temperature, pressure is inversely proportional to volume. In other words, PV product is constant.

Furthermore, is the ideal gas law an equation of state?

The **ideal gas law**, or universal **gas equation**, is an **equation of state** of an **ideal gas**. It combines several **gas laws** (i.e., Dalton's **Law**, **Boyle's Law**, **Charles Laws**):

Also, how do you find the equation of a state? The simplest known example of an **equation of state** is the one relating the pressure P, the volume V, and the absolute temperature T of one mole of a perfect gas; that is, PV = RT, in which R is the universal gas constant. Dense real gases, liquids, and solids have more complicated **equations of state**.

Moreover, what is the equation of state of an ideal gas for n moles?

The equation of state for n moles of an ideal gas is p V = n R T pV=nRT pV=nRT, where R is a **constant**.

What is the N in PV nRT?

Robert Boyle found **PV** = a constant. That is, the product of the pressure of a gas times the volume of a gas is a constant for a given sample of gas. In Boyle's experiments the Temperature (T) did not change, nor did the number of moles (**n**) of gas present. So Boyle found **PV** = (**nRT**)
