    Is the following correct?

    A real gas operates best at high pressure/ low temperature
    An idea gas operates best at high temperature / low pressure

    not sure what you meant by 'operate'.

    Real gasses don't behave as you would expect because they have volume. The ideal gas laws assume that the volume of the gas particles themselves are negligible.

    Gasses behave ideally at high temperature and low pressure (kind like summer-- it's hot and there's little pressure because school's out)

    gases are more soluble in liquid at Low T and High P
    Ideal gas law is Low P and High T because it assume gas molecules have mo volume and no attractive forces.
