The compressibility factor (Z), also known as the compression factor, is the ratio of the molar volume of a gas to the molar volume of an ideal gas at the same temperature and pressure
we have from ideal gas equation
PV=nRT
The compressibility factor is given by the expressionZ=PV/RT=Z
For ideal gas Z=1
