# Ideal gasses

## Equation of state

An ideal gas has the following equation of state:

$pV=\nu RT$

Where p is pressure, V is volume, $\nu=m/\mu$ is number of moles observed, $R=N_Ak_B=6.022$ J/(mol·K) is a universal gas constant.

The gas constant has a value of 8.314 J/(mol.K) or 0.0821 (L*atm)/(mol*K)
