ideal gas volume

Postby Madelyn Cearlock » Fri Feb 08, 2019 4:56 pm

In the textbook, it says that U is independent of volume bc its an ideal gas. I am confused on why this is. When dealing with ideal gasses, do you ignore the volume when trying to find internal energy?

Is this just having to do with constant volume or would it also be constant temp or pressure?
