Definition

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

For Ideal gases, Ideal...

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
