2013 Mole Day Cake

The Chemistry/Biochemistry Department celebrates Mole Day, which is part of National Chemistry Week. Mole Day is celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 am until 6:02 pm, and commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry.  The Mole Day Festivities included a chemistry-themed cake, guacamole, molasses cookies, caramel apple slices and beverages.  Did you know that a one liter bottle of water contains 55.5 moles of water?
