Question

Leaded gasoline contains an additive to prevent engine knocking. On analysis, the additive compound is found to contain carbon, hydrogen, and lead (Pb) (hence, leaded gasoline). When 51.36 g of this compound is burned in a combustion analysis apparatus, 55.90 g of CO2 and 28.61 g of H2O are produced. Determine the empirical formula of the gasoline additive.
