a compound containing only carbon and hydrogen consists of 362 g of C and 30.1 g of H. what is the empirical formula of the compound?
Convert g to moles, then find the ratio of the moles C to moles H. The easy way to find the ratio is to divide the smaller value of moles by itself thus ensuring that value is 1.000. Then divide the other value by the same small number. Post your work if you get stuck.
