What is difference between ideal gas and real gas, Chemistry

The difference between an ideal gas and a real gas is that real gases will not strictly follow the laws established for ideal gases, because of real-world characteristics.

An ideal gas can follow the formula PV=nRT
(P - pressure, V - volume, n - amount of moles, R - Avogrado constant, T - absolute temperature)

A real gas does not always follow this formula.

An ideal gas is infinitely compressible, a real gas will condense to a liquid at some pressure.

The particles of an ideal gas lose no energy to its container. A real gas conducts and radiates heat, thereby losing energy.

There is no attraction between the molecules of an ideal gas. A real gas has particle attractions.

A hypothetical gas with molecules of negligible size that exert no intermolecular forces is called ideal gas and the real gas is the gas which have the molecules of negligible size that exerts the some attractions and repulsions
