One mole is the amount of a substance that contains as many particles or entities as there are atom in exactly 12 g of the carbon 12

### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1.  One mole  of a substance is equal to the amount with Avogadro number of particles (atoms or molecules) in it.  Avogadro number is N = 6.022 * 10^23.     One mole of a substance weighs as much as the moelcular weight in grams.

2.  One mole of carbon (atomic mass = 12 amu) isotope contains N number of atoms.  Its mass is 12  grams. One mole of Oxygen (O2) with a molecular mass = 32 amu, has a mass of 32 grams.  One mole of H2O thus weighs 18 grams.

3.  Further one mole of a gas occupies 22.4 litres volume at STP.

4.  P V = n R T ,    the ideal gas equation involves the number  n of moles.
Pressure, volume, Temperature of an ideal gas are linked through number of moles.

5.  In a chemical reaction, we balance mass in terms of multiples of moles of substances.
Na OH + H Cl ==> H2 O  + Na Cl
One mole each of sodium hydroxide and Hydrochloric acid react with one mole each of water and  Salt.
