Formula
Formula: Ideal Gas Law
Isobaric, Isochoric, Isothermal and Adiabatic Process on the p-V Diagram

Pressure

Unit
This pressure prevails in a closed system containing an ideal gas. According to the ideal gas equation, the pressure increases when the temperature \(T\) of the gas increases or the volume \(V\) in which the gas is confined is reduced.

Volume

Unit
The volume of a closed system containing an ideal gas.

Temperature

Unit
It is the absolute temperature (in Kelvin) of the gas in a closed system.

Boltzmann Constant

Unit
Boltzmann constant occurs frequently in statistical physics and thermodynamics. Boltzmann constant has the value: \( k_{\text B} ~\approx~ 1.380 \,\cdot\, 10^{-23} \, \frac{\mathrm J}{\mathrm K} \).

Particle number

Unit
The number of particles of an ideal gas.
