Expert Answer:

Avogadro’s number is defined as the number of constituent particles (atoms or molecules) present in one mole of a given substance. Its value is equal to 6.0225 × 1023. Avogadro’s number is represented by N0.

Avogadro’s number (N0) is the constant number (i.e. 6.022 x 1023) of particles present in 1 mole of any substance and hence is also termed as Avogadro’s constant.
