Ideal Gas as Approximation

On Outline 1, it says we have to be able to identify reactions where the ideal gas law can be used as an approximation. What does this mean?

I think that means you can use partial pressure in the finding the answer.

It is considered an approximation because deviations from ideal gas behavior are small.
