Specific Gas Constant

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Specific gas constant deals with the universal gas constant which is equal to 8.314 joules per Kelvin.

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:

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