. When is deviation more in the behavior of a gas from the ideal gas equation
PV = nRT ?
(a) At High Temperature and low pressure
(b) Atlow temperature and high pressure
(c) At High temperature and high pressure
(d) At low temperature and low pressure
Correct Option is: (b)
There is more deviation in the behavior of a gas from the ideal gas equation PV = nRT at low temperature and high pressure.
At low temperature, both P and V are small. Hence, both pressure and volume corrections are appreciable. Due to this, the deviations are more pronounced.
At high pressure, the volume is quite small and the term b cannot be neglected in comparison to V.
