Transcript of Amadeo
he was 79.
don't question....he died before his 80th birthday!
so much for G/T kids...
Avogadro got a degree
in ecclesiastal law.
However, in 1800,
Avogadro began private studies in
physics and mathematics.
wrote a memoria (concise note)
that declared the hypothesis now known as
we'll talk about that later.
He had 6 children.

removed from professor
his politcal actions
intoduced decimal system
served as member of the Royal Superior Council on Public Instruction
Avogadro's law states that equal amounts of gases,
at the same temperature and pressure,
contain the same number of molecules,
regardless of their chemical nature and
Until Avogadro's death,
his theory was generally accepted.
Often called Avogadro's number, and
sometimes called Avogadro's constant.
p * V
T * n
p = pressure
T = tempurature of gas
The constant has the same
value for all gases, independent
of the size or mass of the gas molecules.
Amedeo sent his memoria to:
De Lametherie's Journal de Physique,
de Chemie et d'Histoire naturalle
and it was published in the
July 14th edition of this journal
under the title:
Essai d'une maniere de determinir
les masses relatives
des molecules elementaires des corps,
et les proportions selon lesquelles elles entrent
dans ces combinaisons
Then published a memoria about
Memoire sur les selon masses relatives
des molecules des corps simples,
ou densites presumees de leur gaz,
et sur la constitution de quelques-uns
de leur composes, pour servir de suite
a I'Essai sur le meme sujet,
publie dans le Journal de Physique,
In 1821, he published:
Nouvelles considerations sur la theorie
des proportions determinees dans les combinaisons,
et sur la determination des masses des molecules
Memoire sur la maniere de ramener
les composes organiques aux lois ordinaires
des proportions determinees.
In 1841, he completed and published
his 4-volume work:
Fisica dei corpi ponderabilli,
ossia Trattato della costituzione
materiale de' corpi
