Amedeo Avogadro, the scientist the number is named after

The Avogadro constant is a constant equal to the number of constituent particles contained within one mole of substance. It is precisely equal to \(6.02214076 \times 10^{23}\text{ mol}^{-1}\).[1]

A related term is Avogadro's number, a dimensionless constant equal to \(6.02214076 \times 10^{23}\), which is currently used to define mole.

It was originally defined as the number of atoms in 12 grams of 12C, and was approximetaly equal to \(6.022140857 \times 10^{23}\text{ mol}^{-1}\).
