    I've got a few questions and want to confirm if the answers are correct.

    Question - Only question 13
    Working out

    All the images are attached in POST #4

    Sorry guys, if my working out is unclear. I've written up my answers onto a word document and made a slight change in part (c) where I found a mistake in my working out and I've realised that I've changed the answer to something else which is hopefully correct.
    I've only got my answers in this new picture - not the questions.

    They work for me and possibly I've uploaded them from the iPad. I'll re-upload them on the computer now if the error doesn't occur -_-.

    Here you go
    so you had no. of moles in the order of 3.225, 16.2 and 3.22.
    to find the empirical formula you divide it by 3.22 which is the smallest out of 3.
    so you get: 3.225/3.22=1.00... or 1
    16.2/3.22=5.03... or 5
    3.22/3.22=1
    basically you get decimal numbers and you round those no. because empirical formula is the simplest ratio and written in whole numbers and not in decimal.
    don't think too much and you wrote 3.222 that's wrong because the original ans is 3.2214 and 4 is smaller than 5 so it will be 3.221 not 3.222.

    Sorry, done this at late night lol.
    Anyway, thanks, I was wondering the same thing that since it would give a decimal and not a whole number, I should use a different number - 3.25. But, I've learnt something new :P that you just round it down to a whole number.
