Derivation of Ideal Gas Equation from Kinetic Theory of Gases

Ideal gas equation is *PV* = *nRT*. This equation can easily be derived from the combination of Boyle’s law, Charles’s law, and Avogadro’s law. But here, we will derive the equation from the kinetic theory of gases. The kinetic theory of gases is a very important theory which relates macroscopic quantities like pressure to microscopic quantities like the velocity of gas molecules. This equation is applicable only for ideal gases, but be approximated for real gas under some conditions.

The Ideal gas law is also known as general gas law. As the name states the law is applicable under the ideal conditions, not to real gases. The law correlates the pressure, volume, temperature, and amount of gas. It was first formulated by French physicist Émile Clapeyron in 1834.

Graham's Law of Diffusion and Effusion

Graham's law of diffusion (or Graham's law of effusion) is a law that expresses the relationship between the rate of diffusion or effusion to molar masses of particles. This empirical law was stated by Scottish chemist Thomas Graham in 1848. He established the relationship through experiments.
