Oh, no! I don't know if I would trust water to be an ideal gas, though. Maybe we need a chemist!an engineer?
In freshman physics books there are dozens of questions which tell you to "treat the [whatever] as an ideal gas." In advanced thermodynamics, you need to add the specific qualifying ratios, but this didn't sound like an advanced level question.Oh, no!
