Latm --> J

Postby Kim » Mon Mar 13, 2017 4:23 pm

When calculating work using w=P∆V, shouldn't you always multiply by the 101.325 (J/Latm) number to put work in joules?
im just unsure since that number isn't in the equation.

thanks!

Yes I believe you should although it does depend on what units the question asks for.
