Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

This was brought up before, but was not implemented.

Quantity Unit:

1 mole = 6.0221367x10^23 units

This is an extremely important quantity unit as it's used to simplify chemistry calculations. It is derived from the number of particles needed to create the same number of grams as its atomic mass number. For instance, carbon has an average atomic mass of 12.011amu. Therefore, 1 mole of carbon particles are needed to have 12.011g of carbon.

It's commonly abbreviated as "mol" for whatever reason.
