How do you know which pawn has been promoted?
Whenever a pawn reaches the 8th rank (the end of the board opposite that on which you started) you can promote that pawn. This means that you trade out that pawn for any piece you want.

It also is sometimes worth promoting to a rook, in cases where promoting to a queen would put the opposing king in stalemate.
