Put is simply, enthalpy is a...

Compressibility factor of gases is a thermodynamic property which is used to modify the ideal gas equation for real gases.

For Ideal gases, Ideal gas equation...

A system can reach from state A to state B following different paths. These paths followed by a system while undergoing a change of state, are termed as...

The behaviour of an Ideal gas is described by the following equation,

PV = nRT

where,

P = Pressure (bar, atmosphere, Pa)

V = Gaseous volume (m3, cm3)

n =...

Heat capacity of a system can be defined as the quantum of heat required to increase the temperature of the system by unity.

Specific heat is a property of...

Gas compression is done to increase the pressure of the gas, this is accompanied by change of state of the gas which means change in temperature and volume of...
