R] is the average interparticle separation, h the Planck's constant, m the mass of the particle, k the Boltzmann constant, and T the temperature.
Instead, the Conference suggested that it was "possible to redefine the kelvin so that it is linked to an exact numerical value of the Boltzmann constant k," which links temperature to mechanical energy.
The kelvin, symbol K, is the unit of thermodynamic temperature; its magnitude is set by fixing the numerical value of the Boltzmann constant to be equal to exactly 1.

In class, Vincenti had derived the famous Boltzmann relation, S = k log W which relates the entropy, S, of a gas to the Boltzmann constant, k, and W, the number of possible microstates for gas molecules.
The constant A (=nq/kT) represents the voltage sensitivity in terms of gating charge as the equivalent number (n) of electron charges (q) moving through the membrane, k is the Boltzmann constant, and T is the absolute temperature.

Examples include microwave resonance measurements for development of a pressure standard (1), measuring the Boltzmann constant (2), and acoustic gas thermometry (3).
