Concept Introduction: The empirical formula of a compound is defined as a formula which indicates the smallest positive integer ratio of the atoms present in a particular compound. In order to find the empirical formula from a molecular formula, we should divide the subscripts of the empirical formula by the greatest common factor. Greatest common factor is highest common number that can be used to divide two or more numbers.Start your trial now! First week only $4.99!*arrow_forward*
