# Temperature of an Ideal Gas

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

In an ideal gas, molecules have no volume and do not interact.

### Temperature of an Ideal Gas Formula

$$\large{ T_a = \frac {p}{ \rho R } }$$

Where:

$$\large{ p }$$ = temperature

$$\large{ \rho }$$  (Greek symbol rho) = density

$$\large{ p }$$ = pressure

$$\large{ R }$$ = specific gas constant (ideal gas constant)
