    Hello folks, would love it if you alchemists could help me go about this question:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    0.620g of a compound gave 1.760g of carbon dioxide and 0.42g of water on combustion.

    0.232g of the same compound gave 27cm^3 of nitrogen at s.t.p

    Work out the structure of the compound.

    1 mol nitrogen = 22.4 dm^3
    Realative atomic mass of compound = 93g


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks in advance

    1. Work out moles of CO2 = moles of carbon
    2. Work out moles of water = moles of hydrogen/2
    3. Work out moles of nitrogen

    Put together simplest ratio
