Avogadro's Number Is a Huge One

(to the tune of “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”)

Avogadro’s number is a huge one

Boltzmann's constant's rather miniscule

Values differing enormously

As WE learned in school

 

Science numbers need to have dimensions

Size is not the most important thing

Units give the yardsticks needed

For under-STAN-ding

 

Bridge

It’s taught in the ivory towers

By professors it's so ballyhooed

Values can have such diff’rent powers

That to know them we must have their magnitudes

 

One light year’s a really lengthy distance

Grams define the masses high and low

The ohm can measure the resistance

If current should flow

 

Bridge

One set of factors you SHOULD know

The roots of seven and of three et al

Cannot be expressed as a ratio

Oh these numbers all are quite irration-al

 

Three point one four one five nine two six five

No end to Pi’s digits it’s absurd

Endlessly reminding me that I’ve

BEEN SO OUT-num-bered
