An ideal gas is a gas with particular characteristics.

  • The particles have no volume
  • All collisions between particles have no effect on how fast those particles are going
  • The particles are neither attracted to each other nor repell
  • They have random movement

Ideal gasses are hypothetical which means that they do not exist in their true form.
