Avogadro Humor

Q: If a mole of moles were digging a mole of holes, what would you see?
A: A mole of molasses!

 

Avogadro Number

 

Avogadro’s Number

From Wikipedia:

In chemistry and physics, the Avogadro constant is the number of constituent particles, usually atoms or molecules, that are contained in the amount of substance given by one mole. Thus, it is the proportionality factor that relates the molar mass of a compound to the mass of a sample.

So, what is this number and why is it important?  The value is 6.022×1023, and it is used primarily in chemistry.  Did you ever hear of a mole?  No, not those pesky animals in your back yard . . . A mole is the number of atoms or molecules equal to the value of Avogadro’s Number.  It’s all about measurement – quantification.  Ever hear of a 1 molar solution?  That simply is one mole of molecules in 1 liter of solution.  So 1 millimolar would be 1/1000 of a mole in 1 liter, and 1 micromolar would be 1/1,000000 mole per liter of solution.

I have not seen this in a while, and thought it would be something great to share with you!

From Wikipedia:

Kid Snippets are videos that include adults, but the all the adults in the videos are voiced by two children, either boys or girls. The topic of Kid Snippets is what might happen if people grew up but their minds didn’t develop as they grow.

The BIG List of Calculator Words

June 11th, 2016 by Steven Pomeroy | No Comments | Filed in calculator tricks, Math Tricks

Ah yes, I remember my very first calculator I had.  I bought it when I was in grade school, and it cost me about 50 bucks – that was a LOT of money back in the 70’s (lol – I guess I am showing my age)!  I must have spent my newspaper route money that I was saving for months.  But hey, it was a CALCULATOR, and nobody else in class had one!  Yup, well worth the money.

calculator That old calculator needed a 9-Volt battery to operate.  Its only functions were addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  It did have one very special feature that I discovered – you could write dirty words on it!

 

I’m sure many of you have written words such as HELL and BOOBIES on your calculators when you were kids (or/and adults).  There were many words you can formulate on your calculator with the letters from numbers available.  The letters from numbers list is:

0=O or D 1=I 2=Z 3=E 4=h 5=S 6=P 7=L 8=B 9=G

 

 

The Dirty Calculator Words   Dirty Calculator Words Of course, I was only interested in the naughty words you could write on your calculator.  There were not many that I was aware of at the time.  It’s too bad I did not have a list of possible dirty words back then, but I will provide it to you:

BIGB00BS B00BIES B00B B00BS B00ZE HELL H0 LESB0

If you know of any more, or if there are any from other countries/languages, please post them below!   What follows is a list of possible words given the “letters” that are available on calculators.   Again, please post any others you can think of, English words or otherwise.
