A compound containing only C, H, and N yields the following data.
(i) Complete combustion of 34.8 mg of the compound produced 33.3 mg of CO2 and 40.9 mg of H2O.
(ii) A 66.3-mg sample of the compound was analyzed for nitrogen by the Dumas method, giving 36.2 mL of N2 at 740. torr and 25°C
(iii) The effusion rate of the compound as a gas was measured and found to be 24.6 mL/min. The effusion rate of argon gas, under identical conditions, is 26.4 mL/min.
What is the molecular formula of the compound?
somehow I got it right with CH6N2. Thanks
