  1. pi = nRT
    You know pi, R, and T (By the way, the new rules state that the degree sign is NOT used with Kelvin; i.e., you would write 300 Kelvin although 300o C is correct). Solve for n, then n = grams/molar mass to calculate molar mass.

  2. pi* = MRT
    slight typo here. M and not n.
    M = molarity = moles/L. You have L and M, calculate moles. Then moles = grams/molar mass. Sorry 'bout that.
