The Ideal Gas

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Physics and Our Universe

The Ideal Gas

Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Delve into the deep link between thermodynamics, which looks at heat on the macroscopic scale, and statistical mechanics, which views it on the molecular level. Your starting point is the ideal gas law, which approximates the behavior of many gases, showing how temperature, pressure, and volume are connected by a simple formula.
