For the temperature in every calculation using the ideal gas formula, will it always be in Kelvin or will there be times where it is in Celcius? I know that the units have to cancel from the gas constant, but I'm not sure if there is any gas constant that requires celcius instead of Kelvin.
It is better to keep it in Kelvin just because of the unit of the gas constant, R, has Temperature in Kelvin. In order to cancel out the units, you really have to make sure that units match and if you really really need Celcius, make sure to change the unit after figuring the Kelvin.
