Problem 96P

Problem 96P

A 2.241-g sample of nickel reacts with oxygen to form 2.852 g of the metal oxide. Calculate the empirical formula of the oxide.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 96P

The empirical formula can be found using the table given below.The number of moles of each elements is obtained and the simplest whole number ratio in which the elements are present in the compound is  found.

Elements

Mass of the elements

Atomic weight

Number of moles

Ni

2.241

59

=0.03

O

0.611

16

=0.03

The simplest ratio in which the elements Nickel and oxygen is present is 1:1.So the empirical formula should be NiO
