Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: For the given molecular model of saccharin, the molecular formula, structural formula and its structural formula are needed to be determined.

Concept introduction:

• Molecular formula of compound is the representation with symbols of each atom and their numbers present in the compound.
• Structural formula of compound is the representation of all the atoms and their respective bonding in a plane.

### Explanation of Solution

In the given model of saccharin, there are C atoms, 5 H atoms, 1 N atom, 3 O atoms and 1 S atom.

Therefore, the molecular formula of saccharin is C7H5N

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The number of moles saccharin in 125g is needed to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Moles: One mole is equivalent to the mass of the substance consists same number of units equal to the atoms present in 12g of 12C.

From given mass of substance moles could be calculated by using the following formula,

Molesofsubstance GivenmassofsubstanceMolecularmass

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The mass of sulfur present in give amount of saccharin should be determined.

Concept introduction:

Moles: One mole is equivalent to the mass of the substance consists same number of units equal to the atoms present in 12g of 12C.

From given mass of substance moles could be calculated by using the following formula,
