Problem 35P

How many oxygen atoms are in each chemical formula?

(a) H3PO4

(b) Na2HPO4

(c) Ca(HCO3)2

(d) Ba(C2H302)2

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 35P

Here, we are going to calculate the number of oxygen atoms present in each  molecular compound.

Atom is the smallest tiny representation of an atom.

Chemical formula is the representation of the number of atoms present in the molecule or molecular compound .

(a) H3PO4

3 H + P + 4O -----> H3PO4

Here, molecular compound H3PO4 (phosphoric acid) is composed of  three hydrogen atoms (H) , one phosphorus atom (P) and four oxygen atoms (O).

Thus, the  molecular compound H3PO4 (phosphoric acid) has four (4) oxygen (O) atoms

(b) Na2HPO4

2Na + H +P + 4O -----> Na2HPO4

Here,  molecular compound Na2HPO4 (sodium phosphate) is composed of  two sodium atoms (Na), one hydrogen atom (H) , one phosphorus atom (P) and four...
