## Main Question or Discussion Point

In the ideal gas law, the symbol n represents the number of moles of gas. My question is how, given a volume of a certain gas, one determines how many moles one has. My understanding is that a mole in this case denotes a quantity of particles. How does one determine how many moles one has without actually counting the number of particles in the volume of gas? Thanks for any comments.
