Assume the two-dimensional structure of an ionic compound, MxAy, is What is the empirical formula of this ionic compound?
Chem 14A 9/23/15 Empirical and Molecular Formulas Molecular compounds: molecules with atoms held together by covalent bonds. Empirical formula: relative number of atoms. Molecular formula: actual number of atoms.
