Element X and fluorine react to form two different compounds. In the first reaction 0.480g of X reacts with 1.000g of F. In the second, 0.960g of X reacts with 1.000g of F. What are the possible formulas for the two compounds?
a. XF (for 1st compound) X2F2 (for 2nd)
The second compound has twice the moles of X compared to as the F, Answer b appears to be only answer that meets the criteria. Check my thinking
