The Mole ` 1 mol = 6.02 × 10 23 items, ` Avogadro’s number (N A ) ¾ The mole is a unit like dozen (12) or gross (144). It denotes the quantity of items. ¾ A mole is Avogadro’s number of atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon 12. The mole is a very large number!! Roy A. Lacey, Stony Brook University; Che 131, Falll 2012 3 How Large is the Mole? ± 1 mole of hockey pucks would equal the mass of the moon mass of the moon! ± 1 mole of basketballs would fill a bag the 1 mole of basketballs would fill a bag the size of the earth! ` 1 mole of pennies would cover the Earth 1/4 il d mile deep!
