A student reacted 5.33 grams of cobalt with oxygen gas and obtained 7.50 grams of cobalt oxide. Determine the empirical formula of this cobalt-oxygen compound based upon this experiment.

  • Chemistry -

    5.33 g Co
    7.50-5.33 = 2.17 g O
    mols Co = 5.33/58.93 = ?
    mol O = 2.17/16 = ?

    Find the ratio of the atoms to each other for the empirical formula.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
