Molecular Formula
« on: September 07, 2017, 07:48:30 AM »
Please can someone help me out with this one?

An organic compound is found to contain 6parts of carbon, 1 part pf hydrogen and 8 parts of oxygen by mass.

6g of a gaseous sample of the compund would have a volume of 2.4 dm^3 at a room temperature and pressure.

What is the right molecular formula?

(A_r: H=1; C=12; O=16)

(1mole of any gas occupies 24dm^3 at room temperature and pressure)
