gas con·stant (R),

R = 8.314 × 107 ergs K-1 mol-1 = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1, it is equal to the pressure of an ideal gas multiplied by its volume and divided by the product of the absolute temperature and the number of moles.

An alternative approach is to assume that the temperature dependence can be represented by an Arrhenius equation from which an activation energy can be calculated, t = A exp (E/RT) where A is a constant, E is the activation energy, R is the gas constant, and T is the cure temperature in degrees kelvin.
