Calculating Molecular Formulas - Remember that the empirical formula contains the lowest possible whole numbers that describe the atomic ratio. - The molecular formula is the ____________________formula of the molecular compound. - An empirical formula may or may not be a correct molecular formula. The molecular formula of a compound is either the same as its empirical formula, or it is some whole- number multiply of it. X = Molar Mass Empirical formula mass Example 1 : The empirical formula of a compound of phosphorus and oxygen was found to be P 2 O 5 . Experimentation shows that the molar mass of this compound is 283.89g/mol. What is the
