# The value of universal gas constant R depends on..

$(a)\;Temperature\;of\;gas\\(b)\;Volume\;of\;gas\\ (c)\;Number\;of\;moles\;of\;gas\\ (d)\;units\;of\;volume\;and\;pressure$

Can you answer this question?

We have
$R=\large\frac{PV}{T}$
$\;\;\;\;=8.314JK^{-1}mol^{-1}$
$\;\;\;\;=8.314\times10^7ergK^{-1}mol^{-1}$
$\;\;\;\;=2 cal K^{-1}mol^{-1}$
$\;\;\;\;=0.0821litre\;atm\;K^{-1}mol^{-1}$
Hence R depends on units of volume and pressure
Hence answer is (d)
