    Define what you mean by "size of a mole".

    I think you have doubt in the avogadro's constant. right?

    I'm not quite understanding the question. The mole is used as a unit of quantity just like a dozen is used to describe a quantity of 12. The quantity has nothing to do with size. A dozen roses or a dozen eggs is 12 of those items no matter their size.
