## Thermal Expansion of Gases Formula

$$\large{ p \; V = n \; R \; T }$$ = ideal gas law
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ n }$$ = number of moles of gas  $$\large{dimensionless}$$
$$\large{ p }$$ = pressure $$\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}$$ $$\large{Pa}$$
$$\large{ R }$$ = specific gas constant $$\large{\frac{ft-lbf}{lbm-R}}$$ $$\large{\frac{J}{kg-K}}$$
$$\large{ T }$$ = temperature $$\large{R}$$ $$\large{K}$$
$$\large{ V }$$ = volume $$\large{in^3}$$ $$\large{mm^3}$$
