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.
