i asked this question earlier and thanks to dr bob i got the empirical formula. which is C6H3O2. I need help finding the molar mass to get the molecular formula.
Terephthalic acid is an important chemical used in the manufacture of polyesters and plasticizers. It contains only C, H, and O. Combustion of 19.81 mg terephthalic acid produces 41.98 mg CO2 and 6.45 mg H2O. If 0.262 mol of terephthalic acid has a mass of 43.5 g, determine the molecular formula for terphthalic acid.
What is 43.5g/.262 ?
