Amount of Substance and the Mole
Keywords:Amount of substance, Molar mass constant, Mole, Redefinition, Si
AbstractThe unit mole is very familiar amongst both chemists and physicists, but the name of the corresponding quantity 'amount of substance' is not so familiar and the concept is still a source of difficulty for many students. This paper reviews and clarifies these concepts and also discusses the definition of the unit mole, and its possible revision.
