6 Chapter 3: Finding an Empirical Formula More difficult is finding the compound when knowing the masses or percentages. If given percentages, just assume 100 g total. Given: 43.40% Na or 43.40 g 11.32% C 11.32 g 45.28% O 45.28 g Therefore: Na 1.888 C 0.9433 O 2.830 We must have integers. All seem to be a bit low. So: Na 2 C O 3 or Na 2 (CO 3 ) We have sodium carbonate.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
