The behaviour of an Ideal gas is described by the following equation,
PV = nRT
P = Pressure (bar, atmosphere, Pa)
V = Gaseous volume (m3, cm3)
n = number of gaseous moles (dimensionless)
R = Universal gas constant (J/mol.K, lit.atm/mol.K)
T = Temperature of the gas (K, 0C)
The universal gas constant is also known by alternative names such as Ideal gas constant, molar gas constant or simply, gas constant.
The universal gas constant is common for all the gases and the numerical value of this constant depends on the units used to describe the remaining entities in the Ideal gas equation, such as pressure, temperature, and volume.
For different combinations of units, numerical values of Universal gas constant are given by following list,
