Solution: An organic compound contains C, H, N, and O. Combustion of 0.1023 g of the compound in excess oxygen yielded 0.2766 g CO2 and 0.0991 g H2O. A sample of 0.4831 g of the compound was analyzed for nitrog

Problem

An organic compound contains C, H, N, and O. Combustion of 0.1023 g of the compound in excess oxygen yielded 0.2766 g CO2 and 0.0991 g H2O. A sample of 0.4831 g of the compound was analyzed for nitrogen by the Dumas method (see Exercise 129). At STP, 27.6 mL of dry N2 was obtained. In a third experiment, the density of the compound as a gas was found to be 4.02 g/L at 127°C and 256 torr. What are the empirical and molecular formulas of the compound?
