Chemistry

I am totally confused. Does my answer make sense or do I need to start over? The more I read it the more I doubt my answer. I am also confused when it states Please be specific. Is it looking for a specific number for the temperature and pressure or just the conditions?



Under what conditions of temperature and pressure do you think that the gas laws would work best? Please be specific.

I think that the gas laws would work best at high and low temperatures and pressures. Either high temperature and pressure or low temperatures and pressures since the gas molecules move more rapidly than standard (STP) or they move slower. Under the gas laws the molecules are held closer together at high and low temperatures causing the best conditions for them.

  1. You are on the wrong track. The most deviation is for HIGH pressure; therefore, for the laws to work best you want low pressure and moderate temperatures (say around room T). Under the conditions you have (high P and low T), the gas molecules are CLOSER to each other and that causes them to attract each other (which the ideal gas law assumes does NOT happen) AND the volume occupied by each molecule has a larger effect (the ideal gas law assumes negligible volume).
