Molecular formula is a chemical formula that gives the total number of atoms of the elements in a compound.
Empirical formula is a chemical formula that gives the smallest whole number ratios of elements in a compound but not the actual number of atoms of elements in a compound.
In this problem, the empirical formula of a compound is given along with its molecular formula weight. We will calculate the molecular formula through this equation.
What is the molecular formula of the following compound?
