Compound X contains only carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and chlorine. When 1.00 g of X is dissolved in water and allowed to react with excess silver nitrate, AgNO3, all the chlorine in X reacts and 1.95 g of solid AgCl is formed. When 1.00 g of X undergoes complete combustion, 0.900 g of CO2 and 0.735 g of H2O are formed. What is the empirical formula of X?

  1. you are given two reactions, in which you can determine the grams of C, H, Cl, and then the N is 1gram minus those.

    figure the mole ratio from that.
