What is the equation of state for an ideal gas?

For ideal gas, the equation of states is PV equal to 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.

Beside this, 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):

One may also ask, 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.

Also Know, 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)
