Mathematics is the language of science, and numbers are at the heart of all chemical sciences. Demystifying this daunting discipline, here the author of Newton's Notebook and Mad Science explores the most important and interesting numbers in chemistry, starting with the lowest (-92.4, which is the "negative" enthalpy of the Haber process used to produce ammonia) and working in numerical order—of course!—up to one of the very largest: 6.0221367 x 1023, which is Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro's number of particles in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12.
