universal gas law
relates the volume of a gas with pressure, temperature, and number of moles of gas; written mathematically as PV = nRT
universal gas law constant (R)
constant equal to  \frac {PV} {nT}, where the pressure, volume, moles, and temperature of the gas are represented by P, V, n, and T, respectively; the value and units of R depend on the units of P and V, and two commonly used values of R are 0.08206 \ \mathrm{L} \ \mathrm{atm}\ \mathrm{K}^{-1} \ \mathrm{mol}^{-1} and 8.314 \ \mathrm{J} \ \mathrm{K}^{-1} \ \mathrm{mol}^{-1}
unsaturated compound
an organic molecule containing double or triple bonds
unsaturated solution
a solution in which a given amount of solvent has dissolved less than the absolute maximum amount solute at that temperature
unshared electron pair
an unshared electron pair, also known as a non-bonding pair of electrons or as a lone pair of electrons, is found in a filled valence orbital that is not used in the formation of a covalent bond
