Converting L·atm to Joules

Postby Ricardo Ruiz Flores 1D » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:37 pm

How can we convert L·atm to Joules? I have the answers to a few homework problems if we are able to do this.

The conversion factor between L・atm and joules is: 1 L・atm = 101.325 J (This is an exact conversion)

It would also be the same as using the differing values of R, depending on the units. 8.314 J·K-1·mol-1 = 8.206 x 10-2 L·atm·K-1·mol-1. Therefore you could multiply your answer that is in L·atm by (8.314 J·K-1·mol-1/8.206 x 10-2 L·atm·K-1·mol-1)
