1. Equation 5.2.1’s
P
=
!
rT
k
in Kinsler et al. provides one form of the perfect gas law. Another
form is
PV
=
nRT
k
where n is the number of moles and R is the universal gas constant. Obtain a
relationship between r, R and the gas’ molecular weight M.
PV
=
nRT
k
and
P
=
!
rT
k
(see Eq. 5.2.1 and Appendix Eq A9.17)
V
