Description

Another exercise converting a mass composition to an empirical formula.

Chemistry

Did you know that everything is made out of chemicals? Chemistry is the study of matter: its composition, properties, and reactivity. This material roughly covers a first-year high school or college course, and a good understanding of algebra is helpful.

Molecular composition

We'll now explore two different ways of representing what elements are in a molecule: molecular and empirical formulas. Molecular formulas actually represent the number of atoms in a molecule while empirical formulas show us the ratio of the constituents based on experiments. In order to help us connect these ideas, we'll also explore a qu…

Molecular formulas actually represent the number of atoms in a molecule while empirical formulas show us the ratio of the constituents based on experiments. In order to help us connect these ideas, we'll also explore a quantity called the "mole". Just as a "dozen" represents 12 of something, a "mole" represents roughly 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000 of something. This will help us think about mass composition of molecules.
