Ideal Gas Law: Summary
Key points from this module:
- Absolute temperature must be used when working with the ideal gas law.
- Enthalpy and internal energy changes for an ideal gas only depend on temperature.
From studying this module, you should now be able to:
- Solve problems using the ideal gas law.
- Know when a gas can be assumed to be ideal.
