Boltzmann Constant

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Boltzmann constant, abbreviated as \(k\) or \(k_b\), relates the average kinetic energy of molecules of a gas to its temperature.

Boltzmann constant = \(1.38064852 \;X\; 10^{-23} JK^{-1}\)

 

Boltzmann constant Formula

\(\large{ k_b =  \frac{ p \; V }{  T_a \; n }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ k_b }\) = Boltzmann constant

\(\large{ T_a }\) = absolute temperature

\(\large{ n }\) = number of molecules of gas

\(\large{ p }\) = pressure

\(\large{ V }\) = volume
