Problem 99P

A compound containing carbon and hydrogen has a molar mass of 56.11 g/mol and an empirical formula of CH2. Determine its molecular formula.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 99P

A compound containing carbon and hydrogen has a molar mass of 56.11 g/mol and an empirical formula of CH2. Determine its molecular formula.

It represents the actual number of atoms of each element present in a molecule of the compound, a multiple of the empirical formula.

Given that

Molar mass of compound =56.11g/mol.

The empirical formula =CH2

Molecular formula =?

We know that

It represents the actual number of atoms of each element present in a molecule of the compound, a multiple of the empirical formula.

In the given problem the CH2 follows CnH2n formula

Here n=4

Mass =56.0.

 molecular mass=56.0 and n = 4, that is, C(1 × 4)H(2 × 4)

The molecular formula of the compound is given below.

C4H8 (butene or butylene)
