Hello aspirant,
If you have your bachelor's degree in 10+2+3 pattern, you are eligible for masters at the Jawaharlal Nehru University. You just need to have 55% marks in your bachelor's degree since you are from the technical side and it won't have any other problems.

Find the value of avgadro numbar

Akhila Nagasree 4th Dec, 2018


Avogadro's number (NA), also known as a mole, is a very important number in chemistry and physics. Take an element, say copper, and look up its atomic weight. The atomic weight of copper happens to be approximately 63.55. What this means is that 63.55 grams of copper contains precisely 6.022 x 10^23 copper atoms. This means that the values of avogadro number is 6.023x10^23.

Hope this helps...
