I’ll take Avogadro’s number 🙂
(6.0221415 ± 0.0000010) × 10^23
It’s the number of constituent particles (usually atoms or molecules) in one mole (a unit of measurement) of a given substance. It came up lots during my university studies and lab practicals, so it’s stuck with me.

What’s yours? (and don’t 42 me!)
Well mia’s pretty close (she keeps stealing all my great chemistry responses :O )
Why isn’t 42 good enough. I guess it comes from a time long ago, even before me.
My favourite number is 7, because unlike the all the other fictional attempts at finding a number that is the answer to everything, 7 IS the answer to everything. I feel a little offended that you need justification, but for those less trained in the art of 7, here it is:
Choose any number and add 9 to it.
Multiply this number by 2.
Divide the remainder by 2.
Subtract the number first chosen.
What the answer going to be???
