Homework Help: I know what mol is, but what is kmol?

  1. Jun 9, 2006 #1

    What is the difference between kmol and mol? I know mol is a unit used to tell the amount of particles in matter.
    Mol itself is defined as the number of elements in a system ( and it equals 6.023*10^23 -> Avogardo's number ).

    But what is kilomol? Is it just

    kmol = 10^3 mol

    or is it something else?

    thank you
