Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Emily on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 8:28pm.

How come the charges of H*2O*2 (asterisk means subscript), which is hydrogen peroxide,don't equal? The charge of hydrogen is 2, and the charge of O is 4.
For an ionic compound you can figure out the formula by the charges(when the charges of the ions add up to zero) but does the method apply to molecular compounds too?
Thanks!
