An organic compound X contains 68.18% carbon 13.64%hydrogen and 18.18%oxygen .The relative formula mass of X=88.Given that C=12,O=16,H=1.Determine its molecular formula?
As always, we assume a
We divide thru by the LOWEST molar quantity to get an empirical formula of
And here the empirical formula is the SAME as the molecular formula. How do I know?
