Snapquiz - Empirical Formula

This is the Snapquiz on Empirical Formula. Click here or use the embedded video if you haven't watched the lesson yet.

Question 1. 89.2g of lead oxide is heated with carbon, which reduces it (removes its oxygen). Afterwards 82.8g of pure lead is left. How would we find the mass of oxygen lost?

89.2g - 82.8g
Simplify the ratio 89.2 : 82.8
Divide both values by Ar values.
82.8g - 89.2g

Question 2. Butene contains four carbon atoms and eight hydrogen atoms. What is its empirical formula (not its molecular formula)?


Question 3. What is the Ar value of an element?

The proton number of an atom.
The mass number of an atom.
The charge on an atom.
The number of neutrons in an atom.

Question 4. Which is the correct sequence of values to calculate to find the empirical formula?

Ar values, Division, Ratio, Masses.
Division, Masses, Ar values, Ratio.
Masses, Ar values, Division, Ratio.
Ratio, Ar values, Masses, Division.

Question 5. If a compound has a 1:2 ratio of carbon atoms to oxygen atoms, what is its chemical formula?
