21 Sep Science Tuition on Amedeo Avogadro
Hello and welcome back to Science Tuition. As we have been discussing the famous chemists in our recent classes, let us see whom we are exploring today.
In this Science Tuition lesson, we are about to learn more about Amedeo Avagadro.
The famous Amedeo was born on 9th of August 1776. He was an Italian scientist who formulated what is now known as Avogadro’s law. Amedeo was the first scientist to realize and quote that the elements might exist in the form of molecules rather than individual atoms. So he was first to differentiate between molecules and atoms. His molecular hypothesis states that “equal volumes of gases under the same conditions of temperature and pressure will contain equal numbers of molecules,” which later became famous as the Avogadro’s Principle. A number was named after him as a tribute to his contribution and is known as Avogadro’s number, with the value of 6.0221367×1023.
