Stanley. continued… 2 Lecture • Derivation of Formulas from Elemental Composition • Determination of Molecular Formulas • Purity of Samples 3 Derivation of Formulas from Elemental Composition • Empirical Formula - smallest whole-number ratio of atoms present in a compound – CH 2 is the empirical formula for alkenes – No alkene exists that has 1 C and 2 H’s • Molecular Formula - actual numbers of atoms of each element present in a molecule of the compound – Ethene – C 2 H 4 – Pentene – C 5 H 10 4 We determine the empirical and molecular formulas of a compound from the percent composition of the compound. Derivation of Formulas from Elemental Composition 5 • Example: A compound contains 24.74% K, 34.76% Mn, and 40.50% O by mass. What is its empirical formula?...
