How Big is a Mole?


6.02 x 10²³

-One mole of sheets of paper stacked one ontop of the other would reach beyond the solar system.

-One mole of basketballs could create a new planet the size of the earth.

-One mole of rice grains would cover the land masses of Earth in a depth of 75 meters.  

-If you had a mole of pennies and gave away 1 million dollars of it (100,000,000 pennies) a day to everyone in the world it would take you more than 3000 years to distribute all your money.
