    (i) The ideal gas laws work very well for "ideal gases." Although there is no such thing as an "ideal gas," we speak of a gas obeying the gas laws under "ordinary temperature and pressure." This means that the average distance between gas molecules is large compared to the size of the molecules, the attractive forces between gas molecules can be ignored because the molecules are relatively widely separated, the molecules themselves may be ...
