Percent Composition • A compound is made up of one or more atoms bonded together. • Each of the atoms contributes mass to the compound. • Example: • The molar mass of NaOH is • Na – 22.98 g/mol • O – 16 g/mol • H – 1 g/mol • Total: 39.98 g/mol
Calculating Percent Composition • Percent composition is calculated by dividing the mass of an individual element by the mass of the whole compound and then multiplying by 100. • NaOH: • Percent Composition of Na: • (22.98/39.98) x 100 = 57.5% • Percent Composition of O: • (16/39.98) x 100 = 40% • Percent Composition of H: • (1/39.98) x 100 = 2.5%
Compounds with multiple atoms of the same element • NaHCO3 • Molar Mass: 84.01 g/mol • Percent Composition of Na: • (22.98/84.01) x 100 = 27.37% • Percent Composition of H: • (1/84.o1) x 100 = 1.2% • Percent Composition of C: • (12.01/84.01) x 100 = 14.3% • Percent Composition of O: • (48/84.01) x 100 = 57.14%
Empirical Formula • When we know a compounds percent composition we can determine it’s formula. • The empirical formula of a compound is the formula with the smallest whole-number ratio of elements. • Find the empirical formula for a compound that is 40.05% S and 59.95% O. • If we assume that we have 100 g of this compound: • How many grams of Sulfur do we have? • 40.05 g • How many grams of Oxygen do we have? • 59.95 g • Convert from grams to moles: • 40.05 g S x 1 mol S/32.07 g S = 1.249 mol • 59.95 g O x 1 mol O/16.00 g O = 3.747 mol

Molecular Formula • A compounds molecular formula is its actual formula (not always the same as empirical formula) • To determine the true molecular formula for a compound its molar mass must be known (either looked up or found experimentally). • Once we know the molar mass and the empirical formula we can find the true formula of the compound.
Example: • Acetylene is a highly flammable compound used in blow torches. Acetylene has a molar mass of 26.04 g/mol. It is 92.2% Carbon and 7.8% Hydrogen. What is the chemical formula of Acetylene? • Step 1: Find empirical formula: • CH • Step 2: Calculate molar mass of empirical formula. (If the molar mass is the same as the actual molar mass then the empirical formula is the true formula.) • 13.02 g/mol • Step 3: Divide real molar mass by the molar mass of the empirical formula. • 26.04/13.02 = 2.000 • Step 4: Multiply all atoms in the empirical formula by the answer to the true formula. • C2H2
