In chemistry, n molecules of an ideal gas have pressure (P), volume (V), and temperature (T) that stand in the following relation, where R is a constant.

PV = nRT

If you solve for n what would be a good equation?
I came up with n=PV/RT

Some other choices are
n= PV - RT
n= PVRT

  • Algebra -

    "I came up with n=PV/RT"
    is correct.
