Write the formula for each of the following substances, listing the elements in the order given.

List the phosphorus atom first.

  • a molecule containing two boron atoms and six hydrogen atoms
  • a compound containing one calcium atom for every two chlorine atoms
  • List the carbon atom first.

  • a compound containing two iron atoms for every three oxygen atoms
  • a molecule containing three hydrogen atoms, one phosphorus atom, and four oxygen atoms
  • Interpretation Introduction

    (a)

    Interpretation:

    The chemical formula of the compound should be determined.

    Concept Introduction:

    There are following general rules for writing the formula of compound from their structures.

    1. The element symbol is used to represent an element. It is first or first two from the name of the elements in the periodic table.
    2. The number of atoms of the elements can be represented as subscript in the element symbol.
    3. When the number of atoms is only one then subscript (1) is not written.
