[2011] Brandon Gass: Mole Day

Mole Day itsself was specifically created to raise an interest in chemistry within the general public, while celebrating one of its greatest moments; the creation of the concept of the ‘mole’, and how it serves as a basic unit of measurement in chemistry.

Reason for Existance


Role in Chemistry

Above is calculations to get moles from mass, particles, and volumes of substances. A very helpful reference for problems to work through and easy to read/understand.

Above is just a picture stating what exactly a mole is (602 Sextillion) and that it is also known as Avogadro's Number. Just to reiterate what we've recently learned, in a very disploratory way.

Above is a helpful chart showing what moles are, how they relate to Carbon atoms, what molar masses are. etc. Very helpful information especially if you are going to be using moles in your chemistry class.

This is a portrait of Lorenzo Romano Amedeo Carlo Avogadro. The creator of the 'mole'. His extroadinary work was sadly looked upon as hypothtical while he was alive, but after he died it was later accepted and celebrated.

Video about the Mole and its use in Chemistry

A mole is a number (basic unit of measurement) which is 6.02 X 1023 (602 sextillion). It is considered the ‘chemists dozen’ because it carries out the same role as a ‘baker’s dozen’ does to a baker. It’s role in chemistry is as a basic unit of measurement for extremely small particles that are so small it is hard for us to wrap our heads around.

These are both links to websites very useful in further uunderstanding how moles are used in chemistry (red one) and how the are used as a basic unit of measurment (white one).
