Mole - Weight or Measurement  - A mole is a gram equivalent weight of an element in a liter of water.  For example, hydrogen has a molecular weight of one, so a mole of hydrogen is one gram of hydrogen per liter.  Oxygen weighs 16 on the molecular scale, so 16 grams of oxygen in one liter of water is one mole of oxygen.
