12.5 Equation of State : Ideal Gas Equation
The behavior of ideal gases (of enclosed mass) is characterized
in terms of an unique relation between P_{1}V_{1}T_{1};
Such an equation is called the Equation of State of Ideal gas. Generally
the behaviour of any state of matter can be characterized by some
unique relation between Pressure (P) and density (r)
 which of course corresponds to volume (V). The equation of the
State of ideal gases is also known as Ideal Gas equation and it
can obtained by the combination of any two of the three gas laws
as stated earlier.
Ideal Gas Equation
Let an enclosed mass of gas initially be in the state
P_{1}, V_{1}, T_{1} and let it be taken to some final state
P_{2 }, V_{2 }, T_{2 }, through some intermediate state,
P_{1}', V_{1}', T_{1}' as follows:
