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?

  1. 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.
