The ideal gas law is usually expressed as PV = nRT, where P, V, n, R and T correspond to the pressure, the volume, the number of moles, the universal gas constant, and the absolute temperature, respectively.
where [M.sub.i] is the molar mass of the gas component i (g/mol), R is the universal gas constant, [p.sub.a] and [T.sub.a] are the gas pressure and temperature under the standard conditions, respectively.
where R is the universal gas constant, J/(mol x K), and T is the temperature, K.
where R = 8.314 J/(K x mol) is the universal gas constant ; [V.sub.M2] is the molar volume of plasma products in the local zone of EE in the air of the conductor being studied, caused by the action of the HPC on it.
where Pt is the pressure of the tank, z is the compressibility factor, R is the universal gas constant, Vt is the volume of the tank, Tt is the operating temperature, Pti is the initial pressure of the tank, and NH2 and MH2 stands for hydrogen moles per second passed to the tank and the molar mass of hydrogen gas, respectively.
where R is the universal gas constant (8.314 J [mol.sup.-1] [K.sup.-1]), T is the temperature (K), and [K.sub.L] value was calculated using the following equation:
