Samples of three different compounds were analyzed and the masses of each element were determined.
Compound
Mass Mass
N(g) O(g)
A 5.6 3.2
B 3.5 8.0
C 1.4 4.0
If you were John Dalton and had never heard of a mole, which of the following would you think were possible sets of formulas for the compounds A, B, and C, respectively?

I think NO2 is one but i don't know how to figure the formulas out? Can someone explain. thanks!

    You don't list any of the other possibilities.
    I believe A is N2O; B is NO2; C is N2O5
