Gas constant

The gas constant is denoted by the symbol R or R. It is equivalent to the Boltzmann constant, but expressed in units of energy per temperature increment per mole, i.e. the pressure–volume product, rather than energy per temperature increment per particle. The constant is a combination of the constants from Boyle's law, Charles's law, Avogadro's law, Gay-Lussac's law, it is a physical constant, featured in many fundamental equations in the physical sciences, such as the ideal gas law and the Nernst equation. Physically, the gas constant is the constant of proportionality that relates the energy scale in physics to the temperature scale, when a mole of particles at the stated temperature is being considered. Thus, the value of the gas constant derives from historical decisions and accidents in the setting of the energy and temperature scales, plus similar historical setting of the value of the molar scale used for the counting of particles; the last factor is not a consideration in the value of the Boltzmann constant, which does a similar job of equating linear energy and temperature scales.

The gas constant R is defined as the Avogadro constant NA multiplied by the Boltzmann constant k: R = N A k, Since the 2019 redefinition of SI base units, which came into effect on 20 May 2019, both NA and k are defined with exact numerical values when expressed in SI units. As a consequence, the value of the gas constant is exactly defined, at 8.31446261815324 J⋅K−1⋅mol−1. Some have suggested that it might be appropriate to name the symbol R the Regnault constant in honour of the French chemist Henri Victor Regnault, whose accurate experimental data were used to calculate the early value of the constant; the gas constant occurs in the ideal gas law, as follows: P V = n R T = m R s p e c i f i c T where P is the absolute pressure, V is the volume of gas, n is the amount of gas, m is the mass contained in V, T is the thermodynamic temperature. Rspecific is the mass-specific gas constant; the gas constant is expressed in the same physical units as molar heat capacity. From the ideal gas law PV = nRT we get: R = P V n T where P is pressure, V is volume, n is number of moles of a given substance, T is temperature.

As pressure is defined as force per unit area, the gas equation can be written as: R = f o r c e a r e a × v o l u m e a m o u n t × t e m p e r a t u r e Area and volume are 2 and 3 respectively. Therefore: R = f o r c e 2 × 3 a m o u n t × t e m p e r a t u r e = f o r c e × l e n g t h a m o u n t × t e m p e r a t u r e Since force × length = work: R = w o r k a m o u n t × t e m p e

The American Journal of Nursing is a monthly peer-reviewed nursing journal. It was established in 1900; the editor-in-chief is Maureen Shawn Kennedy and it is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. In 2009 the journal was selected as one of the "100 Most Influential Journals in Biology and Medicine in the Last 100 Years" by the Biomedical and Life Sciences Division of the Special Libraries Association; the American Journal of Nursing was established in 1900 as its official journal by the Associated Alumnae of Trained Nurses of the United States which became the American Nurses Association. Isabel Hampton Robb, Lavinia Dock, Mary E. P. Davis and Sophia Palmer are credited with founding the journal, the latter serving as the first editor. Other editors have included Mary M. Roberts, Nell V. Beeby, Jeanette V. White, Edith P. Lewis, Barbara G. Schutt, Thelma M. Schorr, Mary B. Mallison, Lucille A. Joel, Diana J. Mason and Maureen S. Kennedy https://journals.lww.com/ajnonline/Pages/EditorialBoard.aspx.

The journal was published by J. B. Lippincott & Co.. In 1996 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins purchased the journal from the ANA of which it ceased to be the official journal, to the disappointment of editor Mason; the journal is abstracted and indexed in: According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2017 impact factor of 1.389.

Outer Space Jitters

Outer Space Jitters is a 1957 short subject directed by Jules White starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges. It is the 182nd entry in the series released by Columbia Pictures starring the comedians, who released 190 shorts for the studio between 1934 and 1959; the Stooges tell their infant sons a story about the time they blasted to outer space. In this story, the Stooges are assistants to Professor Jones; the planet's leader, the Grand Slitz of Sunev greets them cordially enough, but it soon becomes apparent that he has plans to bring prehistoric men to life and take over the planet Earth. No sooner does Professor Jones catch onto the Grand Slitz's plan does he end up being tied up. In the interim, the Stooges engage in some flirtatious activity with several Sunevian girls. At dinner, an alien leader, known as The High Mucky Muck tells the Stooges to eat heartily and enjoy their meal, for it will be their last; the trio make a quick dash for the spaceship, but not before encountering a prehistoric goon.

The boys manage to free Professor Jones and destroy the equipment that would have conquered the Earth. Outer Space Jitters was filmed on July 25, 1957. Outer Space Jitters features Moe and Larry's more "gentlemanly" haircuts, first suggested by Joe Besser; these had to be used sparingly, as most of the shorts with Besser were remakes of earlier films, new footage had to be matched with old. In Outer Space Jitters, Larry's frizz is combed back, while Moe retained his sugarbowl bangs; this seeming inconsistency accommodated the gag of a frightened Moe with hair standing on end. This short marks one of the few moments; as the professor and The Three Stooges are being introduced to the leader of Sunev, Larry says, "And don't forget to see Pal Joey, folks." This is a reference to the film of the same name, released two months earlier.

Mundaring, Western Australia

Mundaring is a suburb located 34 km east of Perth on the Great Eastern Highway. The suburb is located within the Shire of Mundaring; the Aboriginal name of the area "Mindah-lung", said to mean "a high place on a high place", was anglicised to become "Mundaring". The Mundaring area is considered to be part of the Perth Hills area; the Mundaring region is well served by weekly and monthly newspapers: Chidlow Chatter Darlington Review – locality specific The Echo – weekly – Midland based Hills Gazette – weekly Mundaring magazine – monthlyEarlier newspapers in the area included: The Darling Swan Express – although Midland based, had considerable space to "Hills" storiesIt is extracted in entries in the J S Battye Library catalogue with items about the Hills. The only railway line current in the Mundaring Shire – is the third route of the Eastern Railway which passes through Bellevue and Swan View; the railway routes mentioned below – first route and second route are no longer operational – and constitute sections of the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail.

The Eastern Railway passed through Mundaring on its first route through to Chidlow. Mundaring railway station, the branch railway leading from it – the Mundaring Weir Branch Railway were significant locations for the construction of the Mundaring Weir. Following the construction of the second route of the Eastern Railway, the Mundaring line served as an alternative to the second route at the time of accidents and derailments, until its closing to traffic in 1954; the line through Mundaring was known as the Mundaring Loop to railway administration in its years of operation, while in earlier years it was known as Smiths Mill Branch. The line served a small population but played an integral part in the development and history of Mundaring; the Mundaring Hotel opened opposite the Mundaring Railway Station in 1899 and served patrons on the route. Mundaring was the location of a Bureau of Mineral Resources Geophysical Observatory from 1959 to April 2000; the annual reports from the Observatory constituted the seismic record of the state of Western Australia for that period of time as well as reports and summaries of activity.

The town lies within the Mundaring-Kalamunda Important Bird Area, so identified by BirdLife International because of its importance as a non-breeding season roost site and foraging base for the long-billed black cockatoos.
