A mole is a unit used to convert the atomic masses of single elements, ions, and molecules into useable units of grams. 6.022×10^23 other wise known as Avogadro’s number. This knowledge of course is by far the easiest and most understood characteristic about the mole. Where my learning really began was the uses of moles in conversion factors, percent composition, empirical formulas, and most of all in stoichiometry. Moles play a huge role in finding chemical formulas, theoretical yields, and balancing equations. The mole is surely an important item in a chemists arsenal of tools. Even though the mole deals with particles as small as atoms the number itself is astronomical. The largeness of this number is truly astonishing. For example one mole of a single grain of sand is about the equivalent of all the grains of sand existing on the Earth now.
