Get some bottled hydrogen gas, and another bottle of chlorine gas. Insert thermometer. I would assume the temps of each would be whatever room temperature was. Their state would change of course, if say the room temperature was like 4 kelvins, or a few bazillion kelvins.

PV = nRT
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

PV = nRT

PV=nRT should be valid, cuz in both cases, lack strong intermolecular bond.

I would imagine that chlorine gas (Cl2) would deviate from an ideal gas quite a bit, actually.
