Values of the Universal Gas Constant "R"


The tables below have been prepared from the professional units conversion program Uconeer by Katmar Software. These tables contain 188 values for the Universal Gas Constant in the most likely combinations of units.


However, the dedicated Gas Constant calculator in Uconeer calculates the value of "R" based on over 900 combinations of units, so if you don't find what you want here please go to the Uconeer main page to read the program description and to download the program. Uconeer will even allow you to add your own units, so if you do not find the units you need in the tables below, or built into Uconeer, you can add them in for yourself.


In addition to the Universal Gas Constant calculator Uconeer contains over 450 units in 48 categories, covering all the standard categories as well as those of particular interest to engineers and scientists. There are also dedicated calculators for viscosity and flowrate conversions, and a calculator for converting feet, inches and fractional inches to and from decimal lengths.
