Question:-
The value of compressibility factor for an ideal gas may be
1. Less or more than one
2. Equal to one
3. Zero
4. Less than zero
The correct value (s) is/are given by
Option (A)
1 and 2
Option (B)
1 and 4
Option(C)
3 only
Option(D)
1 only
Correct Option:
(D)
Question Solution:
Compressibility factor of ideal gas in one Z = (PV/RT); Z = 1 for ideal gas
For real gases Z can be grater then or less than unity. The father away Z is from unity the more the gas deviates from ideal gas behavior
