Thermal Expansion of Gases Formula

 $$\large{ p \; V = n \; R \; T }$$ = ideal gas law

Where:

 Units 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 $$\large{in^3}$$ $$\large{mm^3}$$
