Solution: The organic molecules shown beloware derivatives of benzene in which additional six-membered rings are "fused" at the edges of the hexagons. The compounds are shown in the usual abbreviated method for

Problem

The organic molecules shown belowThe structures of naphthalene, anthracene, and tetracene are composed of two, three, and four, respectively, fused benzene rings, all arranged with their points up and down.are derivatives of benzene in which additional six-membered rings are "fused" at the edges of the hexagons. The compounds are shown in the usual abbreviated method for organic molecules.

Determine the empirical formula of napthalene.
