How many oxygen atoms are in each chemical formula?
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 .
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
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...
