For a child to understand, you could relate a jar of sugar to a substance. In
other words is it correct to say 1 jar of sugar contains thousands of sugar
grains, therefore it could be 1 mole of sugar? (Rather than 10000000 grains of
sugar) I know a mole contains 6.02 X 10^23 particles, but to put it in simpler
terms (that a
child could understand) is my comparison right?
