## Converting L/atm to Joules

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

### Converting L/atm to Joules

A problem from chapter 8 requires you to convert units L/atm to J using the "equivalency of the ideal gas constants" (taken from the answer book). I am not sure what that means or how to make this conversion.

### Re: Converting L/atm to Joules

On the periodic table that came with Lavelle's course reader there are a bunch of equations and conversions that we will always be given on a exam or quiz and it includes the conversion from L.atm to J. It shows that 1L.atm=101.325J so with simple stoichiometry you can do the conversion. Hope that helps!
