Scientific Contributes: He was also senator for the Piedmont region in northern Italy. He established a hypothesis on molecules. He said to believe that the equal volume of all gases in the same temperature and pressure produced the same molecules regardless of physical properties and chemical nature. Supported Gay Lussac's law of combining gas volumes. 1845, people questioned his hypothesis as Avogadro argued that his hypothesis determined the atomic weights. Stanislao Cannizzaro a scientist began to demonstrate his hypothesis in 1858 now known as Avogardo's Number. Avogardo's Number: the number of molecules in a gram molecule (mole) of any substance.
