Specific gas constant (related to heat capacities)


The specific gas constant of a gas or a mixture of gases (Rspecific) is given by the molar gas constant divided by the molar mass (M) of the gas/mixture. There is a relation that relates the specific gas constant to the specific heats for a thermally perfect gas.
