What is the R, constant, in terms of kPa and atm? I need to know by tomorrow for my final exam 🙁
The R constant for atm is 0.08206 atm; for kilopascals it is 8.314 kPa.
Surely you don’t need to memorise these constants! And the whole point of going over to kPa for pressure was to junk the antiquated “atmosphere”
Anyway, R is defined as ( volume unit) (pressure unit) K-1 mol-1
