### Empirical and Molecular Formulas :

Empirical and Molecular Formulas

### Objectives :

Objectives Compare empirical and molecular formulas. Determine the empirical formula of a compound given the mass % of each element in the compound or the mass of each element in the compound.

### Empirical and Molecular Formulas :

Empirical and Molecular Formulas Empirical formula shows the smallest whole-number ratio of atoms in a compound NaCl, CuSO4, H2O, CH2O

### Empirical and Molecular Formulas :

Empirical and Molecular Formulas Formula unit shows the simplest ratio of cations to anions in an ionic compound NaCl, CuSO4, Na2C2O4, NH4NO2

### Empirical and Molecular Formulas :

Empirical and Molecular Formulas Molecular formula shows actual numbers of atoms in a molecule Molecular formula could be a multiple of an empirical formula C6H12O6, NH3, H2O, C2H4O2

### Molecular vs. Empirical :

Molecular vs. Empirical Acetic Acid Formaldehyde Glucose

### Molecular vs. Empirical Formulas :

Molecular vs. Empirical Formulas

### Mole Ratio :

Mole Ratio Ratio or fraction that compares the moles of one substance to the moles of another substance. Mole ratios for water: 2 mol H 1 mol O 1 mol O 2 mol H

### To find the empirical formula :

To find the empirical formula Convert grams of each element to moles Reduce the ratio of moles to get whole numbers

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass?

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass? Figure on using a 100-g sample, so that will mean you have 30.4 g N and 69.9 g O

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass?

### Sample Problem 1 :

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass? Divide all by the smallest number of moles

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass? Calculate

### Sample Problem 1 :

Sample Problem 1 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 30.4% nitrogen and 69.9% oxygen by mass? NO2 Write the subscripts

### Sample Problem 2 :

Sample Problem 2 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 4.37 g phosphorus and 5.63 g oxygen by mass? Since the problem gives you grams in the problem, you don’t have to worry about converting % to grams

### Sample Problem 2 :

Sample Problem 2 What is the empirical formula of an unknown compound that contains 4.37 g phosphorus and 5.63 g oxygen by mass? Start with the grams from the problem

### Sample Problem 2 :
