25Truth be told, a “mole” is 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000 counts of literally any discrete entities. Moles do not represent mass, or volume, or length, or area, but rather a quantity of individual units. There is nothing wrong with measuring the amount of eggs in the world using the unit of the mole, or the number of grains of sand in moles, or the number of bits in a collection of digital data. Think of “mole” as nothing more than a really big dozen, or more precisely, a really big half -dozen!
