Empirical and Molecular Formulas Empirical Formula - Molecular Formula - The simplest formula for a compound that agrees with the elemental analysis and gives rise to the smallest set of whole numbers of atoms. The formula of the compound as it exists, it may be a multiple of the empirical formula.
The empirical formula mass of a compound refers to the sum of the atomic masses of the elements present in the empirical formula.
The Molecular Mass (formula mass, formula weight or molecular weight) of a compound is a multiple of the empirical formula mass. MM = n x empirical formula mass
Empirical Formula can be calculated from the percentage (or percent) composition of a compound.
mass(g) of each element Sample Problem 3.4 Determining the Empirical Formula from Masses of Elements PROBLEM: PLAN: SOLUTION: amount(mol) of each element empirical formula Elemental analysis of a sample of an ionic compound showed 2.82 g of Na, 4.35 g of Cl, and 7.83 g of O. What are the empirical formula and name of the compound? preliminary formula change to integer subscripts use # of moles as subscripts divide by M (g/mol) Once we find the relative number of moles of each element, we can divide by the lowest mol amount to find the relative mol ratios (empirical formula). 2.82 g Na = 0.123 mol Na 4.35 g Cl = 0.123 mol Cl 7.83 g O = 0.489 mol O Na 1 Cl 1 O 3.98 NaClO 4 Na 1 Cl 1 O 3.98 mol Na 22.99 g Na mol Cl 35.45 g Cl mol O 16.00 g O NaClO 4 NaClO 4 is sodium perchlorate.
assume 100g lactic acid and find the mass of each element Sample Problem 3.5 Determining a Molecular Formula from Elemental Analysis and Molar Mass PROBLEM: PLAN: amount(mol) of each element During physical activity. lactic acid ( M =90.08 g/mol) forms in muscle tissue and is responsible for muscle soreness. Elemental anaylsis shows that this compound contains 40.0 mass% C, 6.71 mass% H, and 53.3 mass% O. (a) Determine the empirical formula of lactic acid. (b) Determine the molecular formula. preliminary formula empirical formula divide each mass by mol mass( M ) molecular formula use # mols as subscripts convert to integer subscripts divide mol mass by mass of empirical formula to get a multiplier

Ethanol fermentation is a biological process in which sugars such as glucose , fructose , and sucrose are converted into cellular energy and thereby produce ethanol and carbon dioxide as metabolic waste products.
The chemical equation below summarizes the fermentation of glucose. One glucose molecule is converted into two ethanol molecules and two carbon dioxide molecules:
C 6 H 12 O 6 -> 2C 2 H 5 OH + 2CO 2
all metal oxides soluble in water gives alkalies(bases)
CaO (s) + H 2 O (l) ↔ Ca(OH) 2
Na 2 O + H 2 O -> 2 NaOH
(MgO + H 2 O -> Mg(OH) 2 ),
All nonmetals form covalent oxides with oxygen, which react with water to form acids
