#### Explanation:

Carbon weight=12 grams

Hydrogen weight=1 gram

Oxygen weight=16 grams

C to H ratio (mass)=6

Therefore for each carbon, you have two units of hydrogen

(

So far it is

C to O ratio is

Since for 1 Carbon (12 grams), you need some oxygen:

where C=12 grams (for one mole)

Exactly Oxygen has a weight of 16 grams per mole.

Therefore your formula for this case is;

where you have a molecular weight of 30 grams per mole.

Your formula is
