Somewhere in the text or lectures for your course, it has been stated, " One mole of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 L at STP." If it ain't been said outright to you previously, it has now. One mole also contains Avogadro's number of molecules, 6.02x10E23. This should have you in business on this and your other posted question. If not, holler.
