= 6.022 140 76 x 1023
, is a proportionality constant between the quantity amount of substance (n
, with unit mole) and the quantity for counting entities (N
with unit one, symbol 1), N
- In the revision of the International System of Units (SI) of 2019 the Avogadro constant became one of the seven defining constants with the exact value 6.022 140 76 x 1023 mol-1.
- The Avogadro number is the exact numerical value of the Avogadro constant, 6.022 140 76 x 1023
