4.6g of an organic gaseous compound was burned. Its gas density compared to air is 23. After burning this compound, 4.48 L of CO2 (at 0 °C and 1 atm) and 5.4 g of H2O were produced. What is the name and chemical formula of this organic compound?
If we assume that the density (23) of the gas has been compared to the density of
The organic compound burnt was
The amount of
This amount of
Again the amount of
Total mass of carbon and hydrogen in the
So the remaining amount
So 1 mol of the compound should contain
So 1 molecule of the compound should contain 2 molecules or 2 atoms of Carbon, 3 molecules or 6atoms of Hydrogen and 0.5molecule or 1atom of Oxygen.
Hence the molecular formula of the compound is
Two substances (1)Dimethylether(
