In hmolscience, hmol, pronounced "H-mole", refers to a "mol" (Nernst, 1895), or “chemical amount”, of humans; a yet-undefined but theoretically-needed mass amount or number for basic human chemical reaction calculations, e.g. human free energy of formation.
The term “hmol” was coined in 2007 by Libb Thims, based on a combination earlier discussion (2006) with Georgi Gladyshev on how many people would be the correct number to define a “mol of humans”, e.g. for social Gibbs energy calculations, Gibbs energy normally measured in joules per mol (J/mol); Babics Laszlo (2003) and his “social Avogadro number” attempts; Pierre Levy (1994) and his discussion of “molar groups” of humans; and Stuart Dodd (1953), during one of the Princeton social physics project meetings, headed by John Stewart, speaking about “chemical moles” being equivalent to “number of people” in social physics.
Knowing, e.g., that the average resting energy of a human is about 100 watts, one can calculate that the average work energy released or expended in a sexual reproducing generational reaction (25-years) is about 200 GJ, and that if a "mol" of humans, i.e. hmol, were defined as a thousand people (500 men, 500 women), say put experimentally on a deserted island (see: island model), then the chemical free energy change of the reproductive formations (products) that result, , or human free energy of formations, which technically are called "double displacement reactions", would be on the magnitude of about = 100 TJ/hmol, i.e. "one-hundred tera-joules per human mol", in words.
