### non gases

Since the ideal gas law only applies to gases, does that mean we can just ignore the non-gases?

Yes, you cannot use the ideal gas law for nonideal gases, solids, or liquids.

### Re: non gases

In ICE tables (which we will learn about later), we ignore solids and liquids and only worry about aqueous solutions and gases. Would the ideal gas law be relevant to why we ignore those two states?
