ideal gas law

n.
A physical law describing the relationship of the measurable properties of an ideal gas, where P (pressure) × V (volume) = n (number of moles) × R (the gas constant) × T (temperature in Kelvin). It is derived from a combination of the gas laws of Boyle, Charles, and Avogadro. Also called universal gas law.

When pressure and temperature on either side of the membrane are equal, and the ideal gas law holds, the trans-membrane flux is expressed in terms of a partial pressure driving force as follows [7]:
The manifold temperatures [T.sub.1] and [T.sub.2] are calculated from the ideal gas law, [T.sub.x] = [V.sub.x][P.sub.x]/([Rm.sub.x]).
The flow along the streamline that runs from the pressure source to the center of the air capacitor (streamline 1 in Figure 3) was calculated using conservation of mass, the ideal gas law, and the Bernoulli equation [15].
If you had a simple Ideal Gas Law PV=nRT compressor, the simple fact of compressing gas (in this case, ambient air) from, say, 10 PSIA and 23 F (at roughly 10,000 feet) back to sea level pressure of 14.7 PSIG would heat the gas.
