The numerical value of F to be used in coulometric chemical measurements is 96 485.3401(48) [5.0 108 ] when the relevant current is
measured in terms of representations of the volt and ohm based on the Josephson and quantum Hall effects and the internationally adopted conventional values of the Josephson and von Klitzing constants KJ90 and RK90 given in the Adopted values table.

The entropy of an ideal monoatomic gas of relative atomic mass Ar is given by S = S0 + 23 R ln Ar R ln(p/p0 ) + 52 R ln(T /K).
