Answer:

The number of moles of the gas can be calculated from the ideal gas law, as well as the gas constant.

Explanation:

Only the ideal gas law includes a variable for moles and the gas constant.

The equation for the ideal gas law is #PV=nRT#, where #n# is moles, and #R# is the gas constant.

To solve for moles, rearrange the equation to #n=(PV)/(RT)#.

To solve for the gas constant, rearrange the equation to #R=(PV)/(nT)#.
