What does each variable in this equation represent?

I don't see any equation attached to your post you might want to fix it

I'm assuming you are talking about the Ideal Gas Law, PV=nRT.
P stands for pressure
V stands for volume
n stands for moles
R is a constant that you use to convert your answer into useful units. Based on your units for your other variables you would have a different R value.
T stands for temperature.

or you could be talking about the boltzmann formula for entropy , "S=klnW" where, S=entropy, k=1.381*10^-23 j/k (the boltzmann constant), and W is the number of ways that the atoms or molecules in the sample can be arranged with the same total energy

When using the Ideal Gas Law typically, following units are used. However, they may be converted appropriately.
P = atm
V = L
n = moles
R = 0.08206 (Latm)/(molK)
T = K

PV=nRT is also often manipulated to become P=(n/V)RT = CRT, where C = concentration (M=mol/L)
