1

What do the letters stand for in pV=nRT?

Pressure x volume = number of moles x molar gas constant x temperature

2

What do the letters stand for in pV=NkT?

Pressure x volume = number of gas molecules x Boltzmann constant x temperature

3

What do the letters stand for in
pV=(1/3)Nm(C bar ^2)?

Pressure x volume = (1 divided by 3) x number of gas molecules x mass x C bar ^2

4

What does the letters stand for in 1/2 x m x (c bar ^2) = 3/2 x k x T?

1/2 x mass x speed of light = 3/2 x Boltzmann constant x temperature
KE = 3/2 x Boltzmann constant x temperature

5

What equation can we use to derive 1/2 x m x (C bar ^2) = 3/2 x k x T?

E = 3/2 x k x T
because KE = 1/2 m c^2
