What is Mole Day?

Mole day commemorates Avogadro’s Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry.  For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the molar mass of the molecule.  For example, the water molecule has a molar mass of 18.  Therefore, one mole of water weighs 18 grams.  Similarly, a mole of neon has a molar mass of 20 grams.  In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro’s Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. 

Hope to see you there!
