Assume Ideal Behavior

I noticed that a couple problems in the book ask you to "assume ideal behavior". After looking at the solutions manual it looks like this means assume there is 1 mole of the given substance? I am not familiar with this phrase and I am hoping someone can maybe shed some light on the subject.

Tbh I think some of the textbook questions forgot to include number of moles. That phrase is used to denote to use the 3/2 R and 5/2 R values for C in the entropy equations.

Re: Assume Ideal Behavior

Ideal conditions usually implies that you are working with a monoatomic gas particles that elastically collide and thus can be modeled with the ideal gas law.

Re: Assume Ideal Behavior

This "assume ideal behavior" just means you can us PV=nRT equation
