A substance in cough drops is composed of C, H, and O. A 0.1005g sample is combusted, producing 0.2829g of CO2 and 0.1159g of H2O. What is the empirical formula?
It is required to calculate the empirical formula of the compound on the basis of given values.
Mass of sample = 0.1005 g
Mass of CO2 produced = 0.2829 g
