    In mark schemes they usually underline either 1 mol or one mole when you have to say the definition of e.g. 'electron affinity of chlorine'

    What is the difference between 1 mol and one mole and would they mark you wrong if you said 1 mol when one mole is underlined in the mark scheme?

    one is the SI unit (mol)
    and the other is an Avogadro number of particles (1 mole)

    Either would be accepted unless you are specifically asked for the definition.
