  1. Use PV = nRT
    Calcualte n
    n= #moles = grams/molar mass
    You know n and g, calculate molar mass

  3. n comes from the equation PV = nRT.
    You have V, P, T, and you know R (0.08206) . n is the only unknown in that equation.
    Don't forget to change T to Kelvin.
    K = 273 + Celsius.
