    Hello Mangousteagile51,

    thank you for your question!

    The number of Avogadro is a constant discovered by Amedeo Avogadro. It has an approximate value of

    $$6,022 \times 10^{23}$$

    The Avogadro number is widely used in chemistry since it is the precise number of atoms or molecules in a mole. Indeed, ONE mole of atoms or molecules represents 6.022 • 10 ^ 23 of these. Similarly, a dozen eggs represents 12 eggs, even though it is said that there are only ONE dozen.

    Let us know if we can help you with anything else!:)
