**Chapter 9**Empirical Formulas Timberlake LecturePLUS**Types of Formulas**The formulas for compounds can be expressed as an empirical formula and as a molecular(true) formula. Empirical Molecular (true) Name CH C2H2 acetylene CH C6H6 benzene CO2 CO2 carbon dioxide CH2O C5H10O5 ribose Timberlake LecturePLUS**Empirical Formulas**Write your own one-sentence definition for each of the following: Empirical formula Molecular formula Timberlake LecturePLUS**An empirical formula represents the simplest whole number**ratio of the atoms in a compound. • The molecular formula is the true or actual ratio of the atoms in a compound. Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-1**A. What is the empirical formula for C4H8? 1) C2H4 2) CH2 3) CH B. What is the empirical formula for C8H14? 1) C4H7 2) C6H12 3) C8H14 C. What is a molecular formula for CH2O? 1) CH2O 2) C2H4O2 3) C3H6O3 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Solution EF-1**A. What is the empirical formula for C4H8? 2) CH2 B. What is the empirical formula for C8H14? 1) C4H7 C. What is a molecular formula for CH2O? 1) CH2O 2) C2H4O2 3) C3H6O3 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-2**If the molecular formula has 4 atoms of N, what is the molecular formula if SN is the empirical formula? Explain. 1) SN 2) SN4 3) S4N4 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Solution EF-2**If the molecular formula has 4 atoms of N, what is the molecular formula if SN is the empirical formula? Explain. 3) S4N4 If the actual formula has 4 atoms of N, and S is related 1:1, then there must also be 4 atoms of S. Timberlake LecturePLUS**Empirical and Molecular Formulas**molar mass = a whole number = n simplest mass n = 1 molar mass = empirical mass molecular formula = empirical formula n = 2 molar mass = 2 x empirical mass molecular formula = 2 x empirical formula molecular formula = or > empirical formula Timberlake LecturePLUS**Molecular Formula**Empirical Formula Molecular Mass Empirical Mass Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-3**A compound has a formula mass of 176.0 and an empirical formula of C3H4O3. What is the molecular formula? 1) C3H4O3 2) C6H8O6 3) C9H12O9 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Solution EF-3**A compound has a formula mass of 176.0 and an empirical formula of C3H4O3. What is the molecular formula? 2)C6H8O6 C3H4O3 = 88.0 g/EF 176.0 g = 2.00 88.0 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-4**If there are 192.0 g of O in the molecular formula, what is the true formula if the EF is C7H6O4? 1) C7H6O4 2) C14H12O8 3) C21H18O12 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Solution EF-4**If there are 192.0 g of O in the molecular formula, what is the true formula if the EF is C7H6O4? 3) C21H18O12 192 g O = 3 x O4 or 3 x C7H6O4 64.0 g O in EF Timberlake LecturePLUS**Finding the Molecular Formula**A compound is Cl 71.65%, C 24.27%, and H 4.07%. What are the empirical and molecular formulas? The molar mass is known to be 99.0 g/mol. 1. State mass percents as grams in a 100.00-g sample of the compound. Cl 71.65 g C 24.27 g H 4.07 g Timberlake LecturePLUS**2. Calculate the number of moles of each element.**71.65 g Cl x 1 mol Cl = 2.02 mol Cl 35.5 g Cl 24.27 g C x 1 mol C = 2.02 mol C 12.0 g C 4.07 g H x 1 mol H = 4.04 mol H 1.01 g H Timberlake LecturePLUS**Why moles?**Why do you need the number of moles of each element in the compound? Timberlake LecturePLUS**3. Find the smallest whole number ratio by dividing each**mole value by the smallest mole values: Cl: 2.02 = 1 Cl 2.02 C: 2.02 = 1 C 2.02 H: 4.04 = 2 H 2.02 4. Write the simplest or empirical formula CH2Cl Timberlake LecturePLUS**5. EM (empirical mass)**= 1(C) + 2(H) + 1(Cl) = 49.5 6. n = molar mass/empirical mass Molar mass = 99.0 g/mol = n = 2 E M 49.5 g/EM 7.Molecular formula (CH2Cl)2 = C2H4Cl2 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-5**Aspirin is 60.0% C, 4.5 % H and 35.5 O. Calculate its simplest formula. In 100 g of aspirin, there are 60.0 g C, 4.5 g H, and 35.5 g O.

Multiply all results by an integer to give whole numbers for subscripts. (1/2) 0.5 x2 = 1 (1/3) 0.333 x 3 = 1 (1/4) 0.25 x4 = 1 (3/4) 0.75 x 4 = 3 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Multiply everything x 4**C: 2.25 mol C x 4 = 9 mol C H: 2.0 mol H x 4 = 8 mol H O: 1.00 mol O x 4 = 4 mol O Use the whole numbers of mols as the subscripts in the simplest formula C9H8O4 Timberlake LecturePLUS**Learning Check EF-6**A compound is 27.4% S, 12.0% N and 60.6 % Cl. If the compound has a molar mass of 351 g/mol, what is the molecular formula?
