R is the ideal gas constant and R= 0.08206 (L atm)/(K mol)

R is the gas constant. As the name suggests, its just a constant that you will be given.

Is this the same as Reidberg's constant?

No, the Rydberg constant relates to atomic spectra and quantum levels of the hydrogen atom. These two constant correlate to different parts of chem.

R represents the ideal gas constant, which depends on the units of measurements of the other variables.

R is the ideal gas constant, and its value depends on the units of P, V, n, and T within the ideal gas law.

R is the ideal gas constant (not to be confused with the Rydberg constant) and its value is dependent on other units of measure (P, V, n, T) within the equation.

Hope this helps!
