Given: CCl, 189.85 g/mol
To determine the molecular formula, we need to divide the molar mass by the empirical mass. The empirical mass is:
1 × 12.01 g/mol C = 12.01 g/mol C
1 × 35.45 g/mol Cl = 35.45 g/mol Cl
Molar Mass = 47.46 g/mol
From the given molar mass and empirical formula of several compounds, find the molecular formula of each compound.
CCl, 189.85 g/mol
