  1. Bravo, sir. (With an exponent that high, the 6.022&c. doesn’t really matter, does it? Or did I sleep through mol hour?)

  2. Remind me one of these days to sing you the silly song I made up for my class for Mole Day. I thought it was rather clever. At the very least, I think it helped my chemistry students remember.

    • Katie, would you email me the words to your Mole Day song? I need help remembering; I’m taking chem this semester. 😀

  3. bluntobject: yes, the decimals do matter when it comes to calculations and sigfigs (significant figures for you non-science-ers).

    WtC: Sorry, but there is a correction to the number – 6.02214179 x 10^23 (instead of 6.0221415).

  4. MizMinka,

    Will do. Just promise to tell NO ONE that I made up the song. BTW, if you have any chem questions, I would be happy to try to answer them for you.
