Calculations

## GNU units conversion program

These calculations were made using the GNU units conversion program (manual) for calculations. It knows many conversion factors and constants, and mathematical functions (sin, cos, tan, ln, log, log2, exp, acos, atan and asin). It runs on the command line.

To specify temperatures in Celsius, write temp(C):

$units -v 'tempC(25)' Definition: 298.15 K  To make ideal gas law calculations, specify R as the gas constant.  $ units -v R
Definition: gasconstant = 8.314472 J / mol K
= 8.314472 kg m^2 / K mol s^2
