### joules conversion factor

Should we memorize the conversion factor for atm L to joules?

I don't think you have to. On the constants and equations sheet, they give the conversion between atm and kPa, which is essentially the same conversion between atm L and joules.

It's listed on the formula sheet; just remember to convert the units to joules in the end.

The conversion from atm L to J is given on the formula sheet for the tests.

To add, if you follow unit cancellation (8.314 J·K^-1·mol^-1) /( 8.206 x 10-2 L·atm·K-1·mol-1)= 101.3 J/(L*atm). These two values are given on the formula sheet and they are the gas constants (R) just given in different units. Depending in what units you are given or solve for you can convert using these gas constants.
