One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The number of atoms or molecules in one mole of a substance, equal to 6.023 × 10²³.
- ‘One of the most convenient is Avogadro's number, 6.022 x 10 molecules per mole.’
- ‘The numerical coefficient is 3000 hc ln / (4 [pi] 2 N A ), where N A is Avogadro's constant.’
- ‘With these diatomic molecules, there is an Avogadro's number of diatomic molecules in the amount of gas that is equivalent to the relative molecular mass.’
- ‘Note that one mole contains Avogadro's number of atoms, which is 6. 02x10.’
- ‘What it is is an impressive example of how successive dilutions can overcome a huge number, namely Avogadro's number.’
- ‘Actually that's many more bits than you could register if you just stored a bit on every atom, because Avogadro's number of atoms store about 10 bits.’
