ok so here's the question- For the compound Ge[S(CH2)4 CH3]4, determine:

a) the ratio, by number, of C atoms to H atoms
b) the ratio, by mass, of Ge to S

I know this can't be THAT hard...but I'm really not sure on how to get the ratio. for a would I just add up the atoms for C and H and that would be the ratio? Like 8:20 and then do the same thing for mass?? Im lost!

Thanks for the help!

    yes to both but reduce to smallest fraction if the ratio is reducible.

  • Chemistry - ,

    so like if the ratio was 2:4 it would become 1:2?

    right.
