The term "hmol", a combination of "H" for human (or people), and "mol"[1], German for "chemical amount", his the unit for a mass of humans chemically reacted together.

In hmolscience, hmol (TR:34) (LH:6) (TL:40), pronounced "H-mole", refers to a "mol" (Nernst, 1895)[1], 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.[2]


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 Q. Stewart, speaking about “chemical moles” being equivalent to “number of people” in social physics.

A "chemical sociology"[3] representative image, showing: William Cowper (1783) on the mixing of patriots and courtiers akin to mixing salts and acids, Johann Goethe (1809) on how Charlotte becomes CO2 after the introduction of the Captain, Ludwig Buchner (1855) on how man reacts with woman like oxygen attracts hydrogen, John Grant on how silver nitrate AgNO3, seen as a gentleman with his lady, changes when brought into contact with sodium nitrate NaCl, Jeremy Adler (1977) his his human chemical reaction theory "dart" (→) or arrow usage, and Libb Thims (2007) the first to theorize about the human chemical bond in modern physical chemistry terms. The mass unit of the reactions, in bulk, is "hmol" (Thims, 2007).


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.

Derived terms

The terms "hmolscience" (Thims, 2010) and "Hmolpedia (Thims, 2011) are derived terms.

“The main reason for the painfully slow progress of the human race is to be found in the inability of the great mass of people to establish correctly the premises of an argument.”
