Specific Gas Constant

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Constants

Specific gas constant, abbreviated as R, deals with the universal gas constant which is equal to 8.314 joules per Kelvin.  See specific gas constant value.

Specific Gas Constant formula

\(\large{ R = \frac { R^* }   { MW } }\)

Where:

\(\large{ R }\) = specific gas constant

\(\large{ MW }\) = molecular weight

\(\large{ R^* }\) = universal gas constant ( 8314 J/kmol-K )

Solve for:

\(\large{ MW = \frac { R^* } { R   } }\)
