# What does the ideal gas law allow a scientist to calculate that the other gas laws do not?

##### 1 Answer

It allows for the calculation of moles

#### Explanation:

#PV=nRT -># theideal gas lawequation

Here

#P_1V_1 = P_2V_2 -># the equation forBoyle's Law

#(P_1V_1)/T_1 = (P_2 V_2)/T_2 -># thecombined gas lawequation

#P_1/T_1 = P_2/T_2 -># the equation forGay Lussac's Law

None of the other gas laws include the number of moles of gas in their calculation
