Consider an ideal gas at 27.0 degrees Celsius and 1.00 atmosphere pressure. Imagine the molecules to be uniformly spaced, with each molecule at the center of a small cube.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the length L of an edge of each small cube if adjacent cubes touch but don't overlap?

______________

I know that the ideal gas law states V=nRT/p and that in this case R=8.2057(10^-5) m^3 (atm/mol*K), p=1atm, T=27+273K. What is n???? I can't solve without n!
