 (ä′və-gä′drō, ä′vō-), Amedeo 1776-1856.
Italian chemist and physicist who advanced the hypothesis that has come to be called Avogadro's law (1811). From this hypothesis other physicists were able to calculate Avogadro's number.

These include the Planck constant, which describes the scale of the quantum realm; the Boltzmann constant, which relates temperature and energy; the Avogadro constant, which sets the number of atoms or molecules that make up a mole; and the magnitude of the charge of an electron or proton, also known as the elementary charge.
