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.

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.
