How do o convert my work function -1.48125 L•atm into Juoles. I was thinking about using an ideal gas constant but I don’t have K/mol units that will cancel out so that I am left with juoles.

You have to use two gas constants in order to cancel out the atm(L). You take that answer and multiply it by (8.314 J x K x mol^-1/ 0.08206 L x atm x K^-1 x mol^-1). The units will cancel until you are left with just Joules.

There is a constant on the equations sheet on Lavelle's class website that has the conversion between Joules and L.atm
