### Universal Gas Constant

The universal gas constant or molar constant (generally denoted by Ru) of a gas is the product of the gas constant and the molecular mass of the gas. Mathematically,

Ru = MR

where
M = Molecular mass of the gas expressed in kg-mole, and
R = Gas constant

In general, if M1, M2, M3, etc. are the molecular masses of different gases and R1, R2, R3, etc. are their gas constants respectively, then

M1R1 = M2R2= M3R3= ...= Ru

Notes:

1. The value of Ru is same for all gases.
2. In S.I. units, the value of Ru is taken as 8314 J / kg-mole K or 8.314 kJ / kg-mole K.
3. The characteristic gas equation (i.e. pv = RT) may be written in terms of molecular mass as: pv = MRT

### Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more
