(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose that you measured the product pV of 1 mol of a dilute gas and found

that pV = 22.98 L atm at 0°C and 31.18 L atm at 100°C. Assume that the perfect gas law

is valid, with T = t(°C) + a, and that the value of R is not known.

Determine R and a from the measurements provided. Express your result for R in J K

--------------

2. Relevant equations

PV = nRT

T = t(°C) + a

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok I answered the first part:

R = slope = (31.18 - 22.98 / 100 - 0 )

= 0.082 L atm C

what is a ??how do I find it??
