The molecular formula of a compound containg only carbon and hydrogen is to be determined. When a sample of the compound is burned on oxygen gas, 7.2 grams of water and 7.2 liters of carbon dioxide gas are produced(measured at STP). When 0.600grams of the compound are dissolved in 100.0 grams of CHCl3 the mixture frezes at
-64.0degrees C. The normal freezing point of CHCl3 is -63.5 degrees C and its molal freezing point depression constant is 4.68C/m.
1) What is the empirical formula of the compound?
2) Calculate the molecular weight of the compound.
3) Determine the molecular formula of the compound.
4) Wtite a balance equation for the combustion of the compound and calculate the mass of oxygen gas that would be required for the combustion described above.
