For real gases, how does a change in pressure affect the ratio of PV to nRT?
It depends on the gas. The ratio of
#Z = (PV)/(nRT)#

When
#Z > 1# , the molar volume of the gas is larger than predicted by the ideal gas law, so the gas's repulsive intermolecular forces dominate. 
When
#Z < 1# , the molar volume of the gas is smaller than predicted by the ideal gas law, so the gas's attractive intermolecular forces dominate. 
When
#Z = 1# , the gas is ideal.
In principle, higher pressures (and lower temperatures) should make the gas behave more like a real gas (interacting, "sticky" particles).
But higher pressures alone don't give rise to a clear relationship with

For real gases, a change in pressure affects the ratio of PV to nRT by causing deviations from ideal behavior. As pressure increases, intermolecular forces become more significant, leading to deviations from ideal gas behavior. This can result in changes to the ratio of PV to nRT.

For real gases, when pressure changes, the ratio of ( PV ) to ( nRT ) remains constant if the temperature and the amount of gas are held constant. This is known as Boyle's Law, which states that for a given amount of gas at constant temperature, the product of pressure and volume is constant. Therefore, any change in pressure is accompanied by an inversely proportional change in volume, such that their product remains constant. This behavior is described by the equation ( PV = nRT ), where ( P ) is pressure, ( V ) is volume, ( n ) is the number of moles of gas, ( R ) is the ideal gas constant, and ( T ) is temperature in Kelvin.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
