Determining the Empirical Formula from an Elemental Analysis InfoGo to Activity
This tutorial explains how to obtain a substance’s the empirical formula from an elemental analysis. It discusses how to compare the empirical formula obtained from an elemental analysis with that from a molecular formula to tell if the sample is consistent with the molecular formula. A randomized empirical formula calculation activity is also provided.
|Resource Type||Tutorial ChemCollective tutorials walk students through solving chemistry problems movies, text, and interactive tutors. Because the hints given by these tutors ultimately provide the solution to the problem, they are similar to worked examples in a textbook. Currently, we have tutorials covering concepts in stoichiometry, buffers, and equilibrium.|
