units for pressure

Postby sas_budge_1l » Sun Jan 22, 2017 1:47 pm

For all equations used in thermodynamics, do we always have to convert pressure into atm(atmospheres)? and if so, do we need to know the conversions for the exams? for example from Torrs to atm?

from my experience, we typically use atmospheres for our calculations. if it is not given, then it is best to convert it to atmospheres.

Yes! I agree, I think if no specific instruction is given, it would be best to convert it to atmosphere. For the conversions, I think all would be given to us. Try checking page 125 of the course reader, there are lists of constants and formulas that I think would be given to us.
