The accepted value for the universal gas constant is 0.0821 L atm/mol K. Wat would it be if the pressure was measured in torr and the volume in milliliters?
PV = nRT
n = (PV)/RT
For R = 0.0821, P is in atm which is torr/760. To measure R in torr, then we would multiply 0.0821 x 760.
V is measured in liters. To measure in mL we would multiply by 1000.
Therefore, 0.0821 x 760 x 1000 = ?? would be the new value of R.
