Benzene, ethane, and ethylene are just three of a large number of hydrocarbons-compounds that contain only carbon and hydrogen. Show how the following data are consistent with the law of multiple proportions.
|Compound||Mass of carbon in 5.00 g sample||Mass of hydrogen in 5.00 g sample|
|Benzene||4.61 g||0.39 g|
|Ethane||4.00 g||1.00 g|
|Ethylene||4.29 g||0.71 g|
