### Equation I've never seen before?

Are we ever going to be asked to use the equation $P_{J}=\mathit{n_{J}}RT/V$?
It keeps being brought up in the examples in the book and just ends up being confusing because I don't remember if its ever been on any of our exams.

PJ is the partial pressure of a gas and nJ is the number of moles of that gas. Other than that it's just the ideal gas law PV=nRT.

it is just a specific case of the gas law equation pv=nrt

appears to be a form of PV=nrt
