I never intended for this to be under other and not science, but a Mole is a sience trem used to discribe that amount of atoms in an object.

Excellent teaser. Honest, straightforward, accurate and anyone could find the answer if the research gets done.

oh well it was hard an very brain teasin but ok

I was thinking Many or Lots.
Can they be more than a Mole?
Nov 12, 2002

All those zeros in the answer are actually incorrect. A mole is 6.0221367... * 10^23.
Nov 12, 2002

well close enough

Count again, it's correct as written. 10^23.
Nov 12, 2002

What a coincidence!! We just studied moles in chemistry and "mole day" 10/23 just class was going to have a party like many other schools but we ended up having testing...i just found it funny that this is exactly what we are studing!

Gram molecule

Hmm.. I was thinking "nine," then I was thinking like... MMMM for Roman numerals... I don't know if a mole really counts as a number though... what do you think? Obviously no one will ever read this since it's a 2 yo teaser, so who really cares.. but still.

I mean, "mole" is the name, but when it's written, it's written as "mol."

I learned something from this. I knew you were saying dont turn a mountain into a mole hill.. just did not know that was called a "mole"

Actually, this is Avogadro's Number. A mole is a mass containing Avogadro's number of atoms.

How about: cccc (where c is the speed of light) = 8.08x10^33

or dending on your definition of four letters: c^c^c^c.

I'll leave the final calculation for that one to someone else.

tricky. I like it
May 24, 2010

I thought google (1 followed by 100 zeroes)

4 letters - G, O, L, E (G and O are used twice, but still uses just 4 letters...)

Googol is spelled with three letters. I'm sorry.
Sep 05, 2011

^ Win.

Googol, not Google. Google is the website.
