gas equation

n
(General Physics) an equation that equates the product of the pressure and the volume of one mole of a gas to the product of its thermodynamic temperature and the gas constant. The equation is exact for an ideal gas and is a good approximation for real gases at low pressures. Also called: ideal gas equation or ideal gas law

For this alloy, the maximum desorption capacity was computed as 4.80 mass% using the ideal gas equation and 4.71, 4.72 and 4.72 mass% using Van-der-Waal, Redlich-Kwong and Redlich-Kwong-Soave equations, respectively.
If the ideal gas equation, P = [rho]RT, is used to substitute into Equation (13), this expression may be rewritten as
Applying first law of thermodynamics and ideal gas equation, following differential equation are obtained.
Finally, the ideal gas equation of state is assumed for the gas inside the bubble:
Gases and the Atmosphere: Ideal gas equation: pressure vs.
Of course this definition is incremental and both Zeuner and Stodola solved the related integration problem by assuming the Ideal gas equation (of state) pv=RT and the caloric equation dh=cpdT and after some derivations they both ended with the above mentioned exponential definition.
The calculation of enthalpy was based on the ideal gas equation used in the saturated air model and a two-step correlation of the virial contribution--the first step to obtain temperature effects and the second step for pressure:
The ideal gas equation and the last relation of (2.26) permit us to write down
Note that [P.sub.B0] can be obtained by substituting [R.sub.0], [n.sub.0] and the temperature of the system into the ideal gas equation. A characteristic "viscous" time was chosen instead of the usual "diffusion" time.
This condition is satisfied in the solar photosphere for both the electrons and protons, hence we can use the ideal gas equation as an approximation in the photosphere.
