Chemistry - Gases

Using "dimensional analysis" show that 1 L kPa = 1 J.

Hints : P= F/A; 1 Pa = 1 N/m^2; energy = F x d

Solution Preview

The best way to solve this problem is by dividing it to 2 parts and taking each side of the equation alone.

Lets start with 1L Kpa.

We know that Pa=1N/m^2 we also know that a L is also a dm^3 which means we can say that 1L ...
