Homework Statement
What condition must the gas be in for this equation to hold true?
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
the gas has to be in constant pressure and volume and temperaute
Nope, not quite (if P,V and T were always constant what would be the point of the equation...? :tongue2:). When we say an ideal gas, what do we assume about the gas?PV= nRT

Sounds about right to me, but I would add ellastic collisions to that list.PV=nRT
condtion to be valid:
the gas has to be an ideal gas,
1.gas composed of seprate particles
2.particles behave as point masses
3.point of mass are far apart and do not exert any force
is this correct??
