Hey, I was just curious. What does Avogadro's number actually represent? Thank you guys. :)

Avogadro's number represents the amount of things inside one mole! Fun fact: it's dimensionless, as it represents different things. I say things because Avogadro's number can represent the amount of particles, formula units, atoms, etc. in one mole. :)

Thank you Charlee!

Yeah, it's just 6.022*10^23 number of things

If you want to get into specifics, Avagadro's number is the number of Carbon-12 atoms in 1 mol of Carbon-12 (6.022x10^23 atoms). I believe that's how the number was determined way back in the day!

Avogadro's number is 6.022 × 10^23 and it indicates the number of atoms or molecules in a mole of any substance!

Avogadro's number, 6.022 x 10^23, represents the number of "particles" within one mole of a substance. These particles can be, for example, the number of atoms per mole of a given compound.

The textbook said that Avagadro's constant is not a pure number and can be given units (molecules, formula units, atoms, ions). Avagadro's constant can also be written as N with subscript A.
