in the equation PV=NkT, what does k represent?????
- supastremphLv 61 decade agoFavorite Answer
k is a proportionality constant that relates pressure volume and temperature. Since N is counting number ("atoms") this means k has dimensions of Temperature/(Pressure*Volume) = Temperature/force*area*volume = Km/N = K/J in MKS. See the answer above.

PV over NT = K
PV/NT = K
sowie sowie i tho it was math ><
