Then find the lowest whole number ratio. (a) Mass of carbon in the carbon dioxide produced g/mol g/mol Mass percent of C in the sample g g Mass of hydrogen in the water produced 1.64 g g 83.19% 2.02 g/mol g/mol g g Mass percent of H in sample g 16.81% g Thus the percentage composition of the unknown sample is 83.19% C and 16.81% H. (b) Moles of C in sample g g/mol mol Moles of H in sample g mol 1.01 g/mol Empirical formula C H C 1 H Convert the subscript ( 12 5 ) to a whole number. C 1 5H C 5 H 12. Thus the empirical formula is C 5 H 12. (a) The sum of the masses of carbon and hydrogen is g g g. This is close to the given mass of the sample. (b) Work backward. Calculate the percentage composition of C 5 H g/mol Mass percent of C g/mol 83.21% Mass percent of H g/mol g/mol 16.79% These mass percent values are close to the values calculated in part (a). Therefore your answers are reasonable. 22. Problem An 874 mg sample of cortisol was subjected to carbon-hydrogen combustion analysis g of carbon dioxide and g of water were produced. The molar mass of cortisol was found to be 362 g/mol using a mass spectrometer. If cortisol contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, determine its molecular formula. You need to find the molecular formula of cortisol. The mass of the sample cortisol is given, as well as the masses of the carbon dioxide and water produced. The molar mass of cortisol is also given. The empirical formula of cortisol must first be found in order to determine its molecular formula. Therefore, the number of moles of C, H, and O in cortisol has to be determined for the mole ratio. In a complete reaction, all the C would have been converted to CO 2 and all the H to H 2 O. Therefore, the masses of C and H in the products are the same as that in the 874 mg sample of cortisol. 94

19 (a) You first obtain this mass by dividing the total molar mass of the element (H or C) in the products (H 2 O or CO 2 ) by the molecular mass of the products, and multiplying by the given mass of the products. (b) By the Law of Conservation of Mass, the mass of the O in the sample of cortisol as the given mass of cortisol minus the sum of the calculated masses of C and H. (c) Finally, convert the masses of the C, H and O calculated in (a) and (b) to the number of moles using the molar masses of C, H, and O, respectively. Then find the lowest whole number ratio. (a) Mass of carbon in the CO 2 produced Mass of hydrogen in the H 2 O produced g/mol g/mol 2.02 g/mol g/mol 2.23 g g g g (b) Using the Law of Conservation of Mass, the O in the original compound g ( g g) g (c) Moles of C in cortisol g g/mol Moles of H in cortisol g 1.01 g/mol g g/mol mol mol Moles of O in cortisol mol Empirical formula C H O C 4.21H O 1.00 Convert the subscripts 4.21 ( 21 ) and 6.02 (30) to whole numbers. 5 5 C H O 1 5 C 21 H 30 O 5 The molar mass of this empirical formula is 21(12.01 g/mol) + 30(1.01 g/mol) + 5(16.00 g/mol) g/mol Since the given molar mass of cortisol was 362 g/mol, then the molecular formula is the same as the empirical formula, C 21 H 30 O 5. The calculated molar masses are the same, so the formula should be the same. The answer is reasonable. Solutions for Practice Problems Student Textbook page Problem What is the percent by mass of water in magnesium sulfite hexahydrate, MgSO 3 6H 2 O? You need to find the mass percent of water in the magnesium sulfite hexahydrate. The molecular formula of the sample is MgSO 3 6H 2 O. Calculate the molar mass of the magnesium sulfite hexahydrate. Then calculate the total molar mass of the water portion of the substance. The mass percent is the molar mass of the water divided by the molar mass of the substance, multiplied by 100%. Molar mass of MgSO 3 6H 2 O 95

20 24.31 g/mol g/mol + 3(16.00 g/mol) + 6[2(1.01 g/mol) g/mol] g/mol Molar mass of water portion 6[2(1.01) ] g/mol g/mol g/mol Mass percent of water 50.8% Similarly, the mass percent of the MgSO 3 portion is g/mol g/mol + 3(16.00 g/mol) g/mol 49.2% The two mass percents add up to 100%. 24. Problem A 3.34 g sample of a hydrate has the formula SrS 2 O 3 xh 2 O, and contains 2.30 g of SrS 2 O 3. Find the value of x. You need to find how many water molecules are bonded to each formula unit of SrS 2 O 3. The mass of the sample is given, as well as the mass of the SrS 2 O 3 portion of the hydrate. The formula of the hydrate is given. To find the mass of water in the hydrate, subtract the given mass of SrS 2 O 3 from the given mass of the hydrate. Then, find the number of moles of SrS 2 O 3 and H 2 O by dividing their mass by their respective molar mass. To find out how many water molecules bond to each formula unit of SrS 2 O 3, divide each mole value obtained by the number of moles of SrS 2 O 3. Mass of water portion Mass of hydrate Mass of SrS 2 O g 2.30 g 1.04 g 2.30 g Moles of SrS 2 O mol Moles of H 2 O g/mol 1.04 g g/mol mol The mole ratio is mol SrS 2O 3 : mol H 2O 1 mol SrS 2 O 3 : 5.02 mol H 2 O,which is rounded off to 1 mol SrS 2 O 3 : 5 mol H 2 O The value of x in SrS 2 O 3 xh 2 O is 5. Therefore the molecular formula is SrS 2 O 3 5H 2 O. According to the formula, the percent by mass of water in SrS 2 O 3 5H 2 O is 5(18.02 g/mol) g/mol g/mol g/mol 31.08%. The percent by mass of the SrS 2 O 3 is 68.92%. The two mass percents add up to 100%. 25. Problem A hydrate of zinc chlorate, Zn(ClO 3 ) 2 xh 2 O, contains 21.5% zinc by mass. Find the value of x. 96

21 You need to find out how many water molecules are bonded to each formula unit of Zn(ClO 3 ) 2. The mass percent of zinc is given, as well as the formula of the zinc chlorate. Find the molar mass of the zinc hydrate in terms of x by adding up the molar masses of all the elements in the given formula. Equate the given mass percent of Zn as being the molar mass of Zn divided by the calculated molar mass of the zinc chlorate in terms of x, multiplied by 100%. In this way, x can be solved. Molar mass of the Zn(ClO 3 ) 2 xh 2 O in terms of x g/mol + 2[35.45 g/mol + 3(16.00 g/mol)] + x[2(1.01 g/mol) g/mol] g/mol x g/mol Mass percent of Zn 21.5% g/mol g/mol x g/mol Therefore, 21.5 ( g/mol x g/mol) g/mol x x x 3.987, which can be rounded off to 4. The formula of the hydrate is Zn(ClO 3 ) 2 4H 2 O. According to the formula, the percent by mass of water in Zn(ClO 3 ) 2 4H 2 O is 4(18.02 g/mol) g/mol g/mol g/mol 23.68%. The percent by mass of the Zn(ClO 3 ) 2 is 76.32%. The two mass percents add up to 100%. 97

### Nomenclature of Ionic Compounds

Nomenclature of Ionic Compounds Ionic compounds are composed of ions. An ion is an atom or molecule with an electrical charge. Monatomic ions are formed from single atoms that have gained or lost electrons.

### Number of moles of solute = Concentration (mol. L ) x Volume of solution (litres) or n = C x V
