The Gas Constant, R, from the Ideal Gas Law is 8.31446261815324 Joules / (moles • Kelvin). The gas constant (also known as the molar, universal, or ideal gas constant, denoted by the symbol R or R) is a physical constant which is featured in many fundamental equations in the physical sciences. The Gas Constant (R) is equivalent to the, but expressed in units of energy (i.e. the pressure-volume product) per temperature increment per mole (rather than energy per temperature increment per particle). The constant is also a combination of the constants from Boyle's law, Charles's law, Avogadro's law, and Gay-Lussac's law.
The Gas Constant (R) appears in many formulas including the following:
