A compound containing phosphorus and oxygen has a molar mass of 219.9 g/mol and an empirical formula of P2O3. Determine its molecular formula.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 100P 

The empirical molar mass is 109.94 g/mol.

True molar mass / empirical molar mass =

219.9 / 109.94 = 2.00

The true formula must be double the empirical formula.

P4O6
