Ideal Gas Vs Real Gas

ChemistryWiki | RecentChanges | Preferences

Every gas can be considered to be in a Real Gas condition and an Ideal Gas condition. It just depends on the condition that the gas is in that determines if can be consider Real or Ideal.

How are the 2 conditions different? Main Factor: Distance particles are away from each other (i.e. how close they are to each other).

Ideal Gas - For this condition, the gas particles are significantly far apart so the total volume is mostly empty space. So, the volume of all the "actual gas particles"
