The Ideal Gas Equation of State is given by:

  •  \left. p V = N k_B T \right.
  •  \left. p V = n R T \right.

where:

  •  p is the pressure
  •  V is the volume
  •  N is the number of molecules
  •  n is the number of moles
  •  T is the absolute temperature
  •  k_B is the Boltzmann's constant
  •  R  is the Gas constant;  R = N_A k_B , with  N_A being Avogadro constant
