Holy mole-y, it’s #MoleDay! We're not talking about burrowing mammals or spies—a mole is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. A mole is the amount of pure substance containing the same number of chemical units as there are atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon. This number is expressed by the Avogadro constant and has a value of approximately 6.02×10^23, which is why we celebrate Mole Day at 6:02 on 10/23!
