When do you use 8.134 and I think it's 4.18 in chemistry
What the difference between the two?

8.314 is the universal gas constant - used in pV=nRT

4.18 is the specific heat capacity of water - used in Q=mc\Delta T

There's a very big difference between the two...

Good answer, Kian.

One's about Gas Laws, Ideal Gas Equation, the other is about heat change during a reaction
