### Can you determine the molecular formula of a substance from its percent composition?

Not completely. The empirical formula of a substance can be determined from its percent composition, but a determination of molecular weight is needed to decide which multiple of the empirical formula represents the molecular formula.

### A multiple of an empirical formula is often called what?

molecular formula :]-kyrstiann dynae :]

### What formula represents the disaccharide that results from two monosaccharides joined together by dehydration synthesis?

See the link below for the formula of maltose

PCl3

N2O4

### What is an emperical formula?

An empirical formula represents the simplest whole-number ratio of atoms in a compound. It does not provide information about the actual number of atoms present in a molecule. To determine the empirical formula, one must divide the subscripts of the compound's molecular formula by the greatest common divisor to obtain the simplest ratio.

### What formula represents the binary molecular compound phosphorus trichloride?

Phosphorus trichloride is represented by the formula PCl3.

### Is the formula for methane both a molecular and an empirical formula?

Yes. The formula CH4 represents the lowest whole number ratio of carbon to hydrogen atoms, so it is an empirical formula, and it is also the molecular formula for methane.

### How are empirical and molecular for a compound related?

A molecular formula is identical to the empirical formula, and is based on quantity of atoms of each type in the compound.The relationship between empirical and molecular formula is that the empirical formula is the simplest formula, and the molecular can be the same as the empirical, or some multiple of it. An example might be an empirical formula of C3H8. Its molecular formula may be C3H8 , C6H16, C9H24, etc. Looking at it the other way, if the molecular formula is C6H12O6, the empirical formula would be CH2O.
