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.

formula

\(R = \frac { R^* }   { MW } \)

Where:

\(R \) = specific gas constant

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

\(MW\) = molecular weight

Solve for:

\(MW = \frac { R^* } { R   } \)
