hi

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
