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.

The equation generates one dependent variable t, two dependent variables [alpha] and T, three unknown constants Z, Ea and n, and the universal gas constant.

where [Rho] is the melt density, T is the processing temperature, R is the gas constant, Mc is the critical molecular weight, M is the absolute molecular weight, and [[Eta].sub.[M.sub.c],T] is the zero-shear viscosity at the critical molecular weight and processing temperature.
Assuming that the mole fraction of C[O.sub.2] in the air, [[c.sub.a].sup.*] (in moles per mole), is constant regardless of the value of P, and noting that [c.sub.a] = (P[[c.sub.a].sup.*]/RT) (where R is the gas constant), we can rewrite Eq.
Where 'Ce' is the concentration of adsorbate in solution (mgl-1 ), T is a temperature (K) and 'R' is a gas constant (KJmol-1 k-1 ).
Interestingly this author realized that the above difference between molar heat capacities allows for a relationship between the ideal gas constant (R) and the ability of a mole of gas molecules to do work against a gravitational field [1, 20-21], as a function of temperature.
where R is the universal gas constant, J/(mol x K), and T is the temperature, K.
where T is solution temperature (K), [K.sub.o] a constant, and R gas constant (8.314 J/Kmol).
