reversible process

Postby Noh_Jasmine_1J » Tue Jan 29, 2019 9:59 am

is the value for R in the equation w=-nRTln(V2/V1) always the same?

Yes, R is a constant. It only changes slightly due to different units used, but it is typically 8.314 J·K-1·mol-1. You can find this on the Constants and Equations worksheet on the class website.

Yes, R is the same because it is a constant. It will be given on the constants and equations sheet

R is a constant so it is always the same. There are different units though so the constant can change based on that. Pay attention to the units given in the problems
