National Mole Day 2012

Molar Eclipse 2012

Molar Eclipse 2012

Just about time for Mole Day (10-23 or Oct 23rd if you will):

National Mole Day Foundation, Inc.

The theme for Mole Day 2021 will be: Molar Eclipse.

What is Mole Day?

Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro’s Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.

For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the atomic mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an atomic mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams. An atom of neon has an atomic mass of 20, therefore one mole of neon weighs 20 grams. In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro’s Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. This relationship was first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro (1776-1858) and he received credit for this after his death.

Mole Day Oct 23rd 2010

Oct 23rd is almost upon us again and it is time for International Mole Day 2010!!

6.0225 × 10^23 Day on Oct 23rd – National Mole Day ’09

6.0225 × 10^23 Day on Oct 23rd is National Mole Day 2009!

National Mole Day is Oct 23rd

Tuesday, October 23rd is National Mole Day – a Mole being Avogadro’s Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. With my XYL being the third generation of Chemist in her family, and our eldest Tom KC9JGD in his second year of studying Chemical Engineering Studies, our house will be definitely celebrating National Mole Day !

As serious as Chemists are, they do have a stab at humor, in example:

Q: What did Avogadro teach his students in math class?
A: Moletiplication

We’ll it is a try!

This year is a Railroad Theme National Mole Year – you can find out more if you check out the National Mole Year Foundation to learn more about the Mole Day 09 :

The Molar Express
(C) 2009 Mike Offutt

(Train sounds/whistle segue into chords)

(chorus)
Get on board, get on board
Get on board, that molar express
The mole is your ticket to success
So get on board that molar express

Chemistry can be so cruel,
So many concepts, facts and rules
Equations that make no sense
And problems that are too intense

It’s a like a long long journey for your brain
But you don’t have to walk because there’s a train
And the mole is your ticket to success
so get on board that molar express

Get on board, get on board
Get on board, that molar express
The mole is your ticket to success
So get on board that molar express

….. full lyric at the Mole Day website…..

Lest we forget, the Mole does have a role in the electronics behind Amateur Radio, as it is part of the definition of the unit we call the “Faraday Constant.”

Happy Mole Day on Tuesday October 23rd and I hope with this early head’s up you are ready to celebrate!
