Answer:

0.52 mol

Explanation:

Using the general gas equation formula:

PV = nRT

Where;

P = pressure (atm)

V = volume (Liters)

n = number of moles (mol)

R = gas law constant (0.0821 Latm/molK)

T = temperature (K)

At STP (standard temperature and pressure), temperature of a gas is 273K, while its pressure is 1 atm

Using PV = nRT

n = PV/RT

n = (1 × 11.74) ÷ (0.0821 × 273)

n = 11.74 ÷ 22.41

n = 0.52 mol

There are 0.52 moles in the basketball
