Babics Laszlo nsIn hmolscience, Babics Laszlo (1944-) is a Hungarian sociologist noted, in human thermodynamics, for his 2003 effort to calculate an hmol, i.e. a mole of humans studied in mass, thermodynamically.

In 2003, Laszlo, in his “The Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Mass Societies”, speculated on topics such as the volume of society (social volume), social acceleration due to gravity, and potential energy and entropy of society.

Of interest, Laszlo makes an attempt at a calculation of a sociological version of sociological Avogadro's number, i.e. a social Avogadro number or hmol, which he calculates to be A = 60 individuals, which is needed as a basis in sociological thermodynamics calculations, as well as a sociological version of the Boltzmann constant. [1]

In 2014, Marc Donohue and Richard Kilburg cited Laszlo in support of their human behavior = molecular behavior assertions. [2]

Laszlo graduated from Eotvos Lorand University (Universitas Budapestiensis de Rolando Eotvos Nominata), Budapest, Hungary in 1974.
