Avogadro says, "Moles are our friends"
Mole Calculations Require Dimensional Analysis
A Mole is:
How BIG is a mole?
- 6.02 x 1023 of anything.
- The formula mass in grams of a substance contains one mole of particles.
- Na = Avogadro's Number = 6.02 x 1023
Spreading a "mole" of marbles over the entire surface of the earth would produce a layer about three miles thick.
When will the World's computers have a mole of digital data stored in them?
Important mole conversion factors:
1 mole = 6.02 x 1023 particles = formula mass in grams
