This learning episode, from the Institute of Physics, establishes the ideal gas law and how to use it. Worked examples and questions allow students to look at the behaviour of an ideal gas and see that an ideal gas is one that obeys Boyle’s law with complete precision.

The activities include:
* a discussion of an ideal gas
* the ideal gas law (PV=NRT), moles and the Kelvin scale of temperature
* worked examples using the ideal gas law
* practice questions
