Title: Calculate RT in kJ/mol when T = 869C - I'm stuck!
Post by: JasonRUofA on September 25, 2012, 06:52:48 PM
I am a first year student in University and I've been stuck on this question in one of my post-lab reports.

Calculate RT in kJ/mol when T = 869C

R= 8.3145 J mol^(-1)K^(-1)    ( these are exponents to (-1))

.. now I know it's a simple sub in and multiply question. But I don't know how to convert K into kJ? And do I just sub 869 into T even though it's in Celsius?

I posted this same question a couple minutes ago having the topic as something against your rules haha. So I've reposted my question in hope of one of you guys helping me out. Thanks.

just convert your T in C to Kelvin which is 869C + 273=1142K. then multiply it with your R giving you 9494.6 J/mol. convert your answer to kJ/mol by dividing with 1000.. you get, 9.494 kJ/mol.
