### Ideal gases

Are we just to assume that a gas is an ideal gas ?

For the most part, yes. The questions should say "assume ideal behavior."

For our level, I think we’ll just assume it unless stated otherwise (which I hope doesn’t happen) i think they mention “assume ideal behavior”

When can we assume the ideal gas law as an approximation? It is asked on Dr. Lavelle's first outline.

According to my understanding of how Dr. Llavelle explains incorporating gases into our equations, we always assume ideal behavior unless we are told otherwise but I don't think for our level we need to understand anything other than assuming ideal behavior. Hope this helps.
