**size**of a

**mole**really is mind-blowing. It is a HUUUUGE number: not written in scientific notation it would be 602,214,199,000,000,000,000,000. So how can we think about this number in terms of things we're more familiar with? On Earth, there are approximately 7.5×10

^{18}(or 7,500,000,000,000,000,000) grains of

**sand**.

Also know, how much space does a mole of sand take up?

If we devide one **mole** with 1 x 10 ^ 18, we get that we need 602200 patches of one square kilometer each to have a **mole of sand**. We **could** stack the patches **on** top of each other and reach 602.2 kilometers out in **space** or spread them out in a one meter thick layer.

Additionally, how big is a mole of basketballs? 59.235 sq in = 3.82161 x E-8 sq km. 3.82161 x E-8 x 510 million = 19.490211 sq km.

Herein, how big is a mol?

**Mole**, also spelled **mol**, in chemistry, a standard scientific unit for measuring **large** quantities of very small entities such as atoms, molecules, or other specified particles. The **mole** designates an extremely **large** number of units, 6.02214076 × 10^{23}.

How big is a mole of salt?

So, one **mole** of water (6.022 x 10 23 molecules) has a mass of 18.02 g. One mol of **NaCl** (6.02 x1023 formulas) has a mass of 58.44 g. Concept 2. The relation between molecular (formula) mass and molar mass Page 4 4 • To obtain one **mole** of copper atoms (6.02 x 1023 atoms), weigh out 63.55 g copper.
