The Kinetic Energy of an Ideal Gas is directly proportional to its Temperature (Kelvin).
At high pressures gases deviate from ideal behavior because the particles are pushed together much more tightly:
A volume adjustment must be made.
A Pressure adjustment must be made.
The van der Waals equation accounts for these deviations.
