    depends on the R you're using...

    if you learned
    R = 8.314472 m3·Pa·K-1·mol-1

    then you need to use pressure in Pa. and volume needs to be in m^3. which R did you learn?

    if you learned
    R = 0.08205784 L·atm·K-1·mol-1

    then you need to use pressure in atm. and volume needs to be in L.

    have a look at the R using different units:
