# Question #4f14c

##### 1 Answer

Molecular formula of Cadaverine is

#### Explanation:

Given

Cadaverine contains 58.55% C, 13.81% H, and 27.40% N by mass, and has a molar mass of 102.2 g/mol.

Considering atomic masses as follows

Dividing the percentage of C,H and N by respective atomic mass and taking their ratio we get the ratio of number of atoms of C,H and N in the molecule of *Cadaverine* as follows

So empirical formula of *Cadaverine* is

Let its molecular formula be

By this formula its molar mass is

Equating this with the given molar mass we get

So molecular formula of Cadaverine is
