Sir, what is mole?

Expert Answer:

A mole (also known as Avogadro's Number) is the number that is used in making calculations involving atoms and molecules. Given the relatively microscopic size of the particles, it would be rather difficult  to calculate amounts in terms of numbers of atoms. So, we use the mole.

A mole, (mol for short) is equal to (all together now) 6.022 x 1023 atoms or molecules.
