Do you think that we have to know all the different units of pressure and be able to convert between them? I know that R, the gas constant changes depending on each unit (atm, bar, Torr, kPa, etc.), so would it be useful to be familiar with all of these units? Thanks!
I think that we will be given these values on a constants sheet or something like that. Just make sure that when dealing with units of pressure, pick one unit and be consistent with it throughout the problem. Be sure to not interchange them.
It is helpful to understand the general proportionalities between the different units of pressure because although we will be getting a conversion sheet, sometimes you may have used a wrong conversion that you could easily identify based on what you would approximate it to be.
