ideal gas law

[ī′dēl ′gas ‚lȯ]
(thermodynamics)
The equation of state of an ideal gas which is a good approximation to real gases at sufficiently high temperatures and low pressures; that is, PV = RT, where P is the pressure, V is the volume per mole of gas, T is the temperature, and R is the gas constant.

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:
