###### FREE Expert Solution

For a given molecular formula, the IHD is calculated using:

$\overline{){\mathbf{IHD}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\left[2n+2\right]\mathbf{-}\mathbf{H}}{\mathbf{2}}}$

where n = number of carbons and H is:

+1 for hydrogen (H) or halogens (X)

0 for oxygen (O)

–1 for nitrogen (N)
