2 What is molar mass and how is it used? Molar mass = mass of one mole = M (molar mass) = (mass of one unit) × (Avogadro's constant) M = m unit × N A (mass of a sample) = (number of moles) × (molar mass) m = n × M
3 How are empirical and molecular formulas found? A molecular formula indicates the number of atoms in a molecule of the compound: benzene: C 6 H 6 acetylene: C 2 H 2 An empirical formula indicates the relative number of atoms in the compound : The empirical formula CH may represent: benzene or acetylene . ..or something else
