1.  Amedeo Avogadro. The constant Avogadro’s number(6.023e23) is named after him

The hint was the pic of a “Mole”. 1 Avogadro Number of anything is called a Mole :)

    The pic is a that of Avogadro(of the Avogadro's number fame).
    The hint is a mole. (the unit Mole, one mole contains Avogadro's number of anything). It can be used to denote the quantity of any discreetly countable things, just like a dozen.

    Avogadro. And that would be a Mole


  11. Varun.M

    the person in picture is Amedeo Avogadro,the founder of the avogadro number.

    the hint is a mole(animal).
    since a mole in chemistry measures the amount of a substance and 1mole contains avogadro's number(=6.022×10^23) of anything(molecules,…)


  12. Varun.M

    a correction:the avogadro number was named after Amedeo Avogadro as a tribute.

    Talleyrand.


  14. Hema
