in a compound of nitrogen and oxygen, 14.0 grams of nitrogen combines with 32.0 grams of oxygen. How much oxygen is required to combine with a sample of 10.5 grams of nitrogen in producing same compound? How do you do the math?

  • chemistry -

    N.....O
    14....32
    10.5...x
    Just make a ratio/proportion out of it and solve for x.
    x = 32*(10.5/14) = ??
