If the empirical formula of a compound is CH and it has a vapor density of 13, find the molecular formula of the compound.
Empirical formula = CH
Vapour density = 13
Molecular weight = 2 × Vapour density
= 2 × 13
∴ Empirical formula of a compound with molecular mass 26 is CH.
`n = "Molecular mass"/"Empirical formula" = 26/(12+1) = 26/13 = 2`
∴ Molecular formula of the given compound is 2 × (CH) = C
2H 2 = CH ≡ CH.
