Ideal Gas Law Constant

Science / Chemistry / Ideal Gas Law Constant: A constant R equal to PV/(nt) for ideal gases, where the pressure, volume, moles, and temperature of the gas are P, V, n, and T, respectively. The value and units of R depend on the units of P, V, and T. Commonly used values and units of R include: 82.055 cm3 atm K-1 mol-1; 0.082055 L atm mol-1 K-1; 8.31434 J mol-1 K-1; 1.9872 cal K-1 mol-1; 8314.34 L Pa mol-1 K-1; 8.31434 Pa m3 mol-1 K-1.
