# Computation with Boltzman constant

Posted 13 days ago
 Hi, I'm trying to run some calculations which includes the Boltzman constant but I'm getting some errors. I'm also attempting with the Quantity["BoltzmannConstant"] but not sure how to use it within the these simple equations. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Attachments:

 Sorry, I forgot something else, these variables would be well defined ?: Thanks La = Quantity[3 x 10^10, 1/"Centimeters"^2 * "Seconds"]; \[Sigma] = Quantity[2.02 x 10^-18, 1/"Centimeters"^2]^ ; nNO = Quantity[1 x 10^8, 1/"Centimeters"^3]; deltaz = Quantity[900, "Kilometers"]; H = Quantity[10, "Kilometers"]; k = Quantity[3.5 x 10^-7, 1/"Centimeters"^3]; ne = Quantity[ 5.23 x 10^5, 1/"Centimeters"^3]; ni = Quantity [5.09 x 10^5, 1/"Centimeters"^3];

 σ looks wrong, there is an extra ^ at the end. Also x does not represent multiplication, use *. I am not sure what you are calculating so I cannot say if it is right or wrong. Check the dimensions of Hp is that what you expect? For g you can use g = Quantity[1, "StandardAccelerationOfGravity"]

 Thanks so much. It is totally clear. Another quick question. Could you tell me if this approach could be right for this calculation: Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Ti = Quantity[1200, "Kelvins"]; Te = Quantity[3500, "Kelvins"]; kb = Quantity[1, "BoltzmannConstant"]; me = Quantity[1, "ElectronMass"]; g = Quantity[9.8, "Meter"/"Seconds"^2]; mi = Quantity[2.656*^-26, "Kilograms"] Hp = kb* (Ti + Te)/mi * g 2.3943*10^7

 You have to use Quantity to specify units. m^2 is not meters squared, it is the symbol m squared, and m is used on the left hand of Set. This is the equivalent to evaluating zz = zz + 1 which will result in recursion. Try P = Quantity[0.18, "Pascals"]; \[Rho] = Quantity[88.7 , 1/"Centimeters"^3]; T = Quantity[190, "Kelvins"]; kb = Quantity[1, "BoltzmannConstant"]; m = kb*\[Rho]/P*T (* 1.292670978*10^-12 *) `
