Molecular formula

I have to find the molecular formula for As2O3, to do so I have to divide its molecular mass by its empirical mass. I have worked ou that its molecular mass is 197.9 g/mol. How would I find its empirical mass, is it not the same as its molecular mass? Many thanks

I have 197.84. If the molar mass is 197.84, then the empirical mass is the same since As2O3 is already in its simplest form.

Excellent, many thanks for your help.

    Hi, Is the molecular formula different when it is in a gaseous state? Cheers ;) Sometimes yes, sometimes no. H2O, for example, is thought to be in a group of 6 as a liquid at room temprature, a group of 4 at higher temperatures,
