Ideal Gas Law -

PV=nRT

- wherein

P - Pressure

V - Volume

n - No. of Moles

R - Gas Constant

T - Temperature

 

 A real gas can behave as an ideal gas if volume of molecule is negligible and interaction between the molecule is negligible. This will happen when number of molecule per unit volume is very small. 

From ideal gas equation,

PV=nRT

or\; \frac{v}{n}=\frac{RT}{P}

\frac{v}{n} will be very large if T is very large and P is very small.


Option 1)

High temperatures and low pressure.

This option is correct.

Option 2)

Low temperatures and high pressure.

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

High temperatures and high pressure.

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)

Low temperatures and low pressure.

This option is incorrect.
