Q: 33. Calculate the number of atoms in each of the following







Q: 34. A welding fuel gas contains carbon and hydrogen only. Burning a small sample of it in oxygen gives carbon dioxide, of water and no other products. A volume of (measured at STP) of this welding gas is found to weigh Calculate

(i) Empirical formula

(ii) Molar mass of the gas

(iii) Molecular formula



of water contains 2 g of hydrogen.

Since carbon and hydrogen are the only constituents of the compound, the total mass of the compound is:

Percent of H in the compound

Moles of carbon in the compound

Moles of hydrogen in the compound

= 1: 1

Hence, the empirical formula of the gas is CH.

(ii) Given

Weight of of gas

Hence, the molar mass of the gas is

(iii) Empirical formula mass of
