Let's drink a mole of 151 to celebrate! Let's see. We'll start by finding a mole of ethanol, which has a molecular weight of 46.06844 g/mol. How much is 46 grams? The density of ethanol is 0.789 g/cmÂ³. So that's 36.3 cm^3 (or mL). For water, the weight is 18g/mol and 18 grams is 18 mL. Since 151 is 75% ethanol, we'll assume .75 * 36.3 + .25 * 18 = 31.7 mL. There are 29.57 mL per fluid ounce, so that's about an ounce of 151. Not enough for a party, but good enough for a toast to Mole Day. Here's to chemistry!

Clam Floor meets Bacardi Floor there, eh?
