In this episode, we discuss the ideal gas law and how the different variables in this equation can help us improve IAP prototypes.
The Ideal Gas Law Equation
PV = nRT
If we divide both sides by Volume (V) we arrive at
P = nRT divided by V (Volume).
P is pressure in PSI (pounds per square inch) for example.
V is volume in Liters for example.
n is the number of moles of the gas.
R is the Universal Gas Constant.
T is temperature in Centigrade or Fahrenheit for example.
Vc is Volume of compression.
Ve is Volume of expansion.
