Happy Mole Day
Yo! Avogadro fans!
Today is our day!
I’m a little late getting this post up, as Mole Day ends at 6:02 p.m
Remember: that equal numbers of molecules of a gas occupy equal volumes under the same temperature and pressure is not just a good idea.
…for which insight Amadeo Avogadro received the honor of having his name attached to the number of molecules that make up one mole of a substance, a number set by convention as the number of carbon 12 atoms that add up to 12 grams of the substance. That number: 6.02*10^23. Hence, Mole Day, running from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m on 10/23.
In Avogadro’s honor, a tune:
Geek out, my friends.
