Potentially useful information
PV = nRT
ln(A/Ao) = -kt
1 atm = 760 mmHg
lnP = (- H/RT) + c
1/A - 1/Ao = kt
Room temperature = 25°C = 298K
ln (P2/P1) = (H/R)(1/T1-1/T2)
Ao - A = kt
R = 8.31 J/(mol K) = 0.0821 (L atm)/(mol K)
T = Kmi
t1/2 = 0.693/k
Kbp for water: 0.512°C/m
Pa = Xa Pa
kH for N2 = 8.42E-7 M/ mmHg
Kfp for water: -1.86°C/m
