|This assumption allows the use of which greatly simplifies calculations||It can also be used to characterize the flow|
|The ideal gas law does not make an assumption about the specific heat of a gas||Gay-Lussac credited Charles' earlier work by naming the law in his honor|
Usually this Z value is very close to unity.16
|Then the volume of gas was carefully measured as additional mercury was added to the tube||The pressure increases in proportion to the number of collisions per unit time|
|In the most general case, the specific heat is a function of both temperature and pressure||His results were possible because he was studying gases in relatively low pressure situations where they behaved in an "ideal" manner|
Characterization of this historical series of microstates is possible by choosing the macrostate that successfully classifies them all into a single grouping.
