Unformatted text preview: Alternate Solution y A compound with the percent composition shown below has a molar mass of 60.10 g/mol. Find its molecular formula with a percent composition C 39.97%, H 13.41% and the rest N. Combustion Reactions Determining Molecular Formula from Combustion y The foul odor of rancid butter is due largely to butyric acid, a compound containing carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Combustion analysis of a 4.30 g sample of butyric acid produced 8.59 g CO 2 and 3.52 g H 2 O. The molecular mass of butyric acid is 88.11 g/mol, determine the molecular formula of butyric acid. Summary of Process for Determining Molecular Formulas y Find the mass of each element present y Change mass to moles y Find the mole ratio y Change to a whole number ratio for the empirical formula y Use the molar mass and the empirical formula mass to determine the number of empirical formula units in the molecule...
