After checking one of my aerodynamics textbooks... R=1716 (ft^2/(s^2 x degree_R).

I hope this helps!

How about learning to convert the units back and forth if you're going to stick with imperial units? If you're having problems with unit conversions I'd wait with aerodynamics...


I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.

I did the problem already by converting to metric and converting back...I just wanted to check by doing it straightforward in English units...BTW thanks Nick
