Is this correct? What is the experimental empirical formula of zinc chloride?
Determine the simplest whole number ratio of moles of zinc used,
to moles of chlorine reacted in the zinc chloride that was produced..028 moles of Zinc
.025 moles of Cl
.025 moles of Cl is smaller
.025/.025= 1 Answer: experimental empirical formula= ZnCl
Yes, the work you show is correct; however, the correct empirical formula is ZnCl2. If you post the grams Zn and Cl2 and how they were determined, perhaps we can spot the error.
