This might be a stupid question, but I am confused about the ideal gas theory. I know that we assume high temperatures and low pressures, and that the volume is negligible when we compare it to a container, but my textbook is very confusing about this point. It says assume zero/negligible volume and mass, but then goes on to calculate 1 mol of any gas at STP is 22.4L. Also, it says that the conditions of ideal gas do assume that there is no volume or IMF, but that it would have some mass. How can it have no volume and a 22.4L volume (and no mass)? I think I need clarification with regards to what it is talking about. Is it talking about the particles? Also, if we look at the graph of pressure and temperature, wouldn't negligible volume mean 0K rather than 273.15K? Thanks for the clarification.
