## Mole (unit) |

**Mole** is the

The measurement of Avogadro's number was refined in 2011 to ×10^{23} ± 6.02214078×10^{23}. 0.00000018^{[1]}

Scientists use this number because it is the number of

The number does not lend itself to easy expression in words. The nearest "casual" number is one million-million-million-million, which is 10^{24}.

Because different molecules and atoms do not have the same

Moles = mass (g) / Relative mass (grams per mole) Example: How many moles are there in 20 grams of hydrogen? A value of 1 can be used for hydrogen's relative mass, although the correct value is slightly larger. So: moles = mass/relative mass = 20/1 = 20 moles.

Moles = concentration (mol/dm^{3}) x volume (dm^{3})
Example: How many moles are there in 100cm^{3} of 0.1M H_{2}SO_{4}?
1 dm^{3} is the same as 1000 cm^{3}, so the value in cubic centimetres needs to be divided by 1000. 100/1000 x 0.1 = 0.01 moles.

A mole can be thought of as two bags of different sized balls. One bag contains 3 tennis balls and the other 3 footballs. There is the same number of balls in both bags but the mass of the footballs is much larger. It is a different way to measure things. Moles measure the number of particles, not the mass. So both bags contain three moles.

A mole is simply a unit of the number of things. Other common units include a dozen, meaning 12, and a score, meaning 20. Similarly, a mole refers to a specific quantity-- its distinguishing feature is that its number is far larger than other common units. Such units are typically invented when existing units can not describe something easily enough. Chemical reactions typically take place between molecules of varying weights, meaning measurements of mass (such as grams) can be misleading when compared the reactions of individual molecules. On the other hand, using the absolute number of atoms/molecules/ions would also be confusing, as the massive numbers involved would make it all too easy to misplace a value or drop a digit. As such, working in moles allows scientists to refer to a specific quantity of molecules or atoms without resorting to excessively large numbers.
