How many moles of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are present in a 100g sample of ascorbic acid?

  • chemistry -

    well, assuming you can find the formula for ascorbic acid, say CaObHc, then you can figure the mole weight of acid (12a+16b+c), and divide that into 100g.

    Then multiply that number of moles by the respective proportions of the various elements.
