Atomic mass units and relative atomic mass
Atomic mass and molar mass
The atomic mass of an element is the mass of a single atom of that element
expressed in atomic mass units (amu)
By definition:
The mass of one carbon-12 atom is exactly 12 atomic mass units (amu)
• 1 amu = 1/12 the mass of one carbon-12 atom
Remember that Avogadro’s number is defined as the number of atoms
present in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12
12.000 g carbon-12
6.022 x 1023 atoms carbon-12

Atomic mass and molar mass
The molar mass of an element is the mass of 1 mole of that element
(6.022 x 1023 atoms) expressed in grams
• the molar mass has the same value in grams as the atomic mass in amu

stoichiometry -- the quantitative relationships between
reactants and products in a chemical reaction
You can think of stoichiometry as a kind of accounting
system for chemistry
• empirical formulas and mass percent compositions
of compounds
• moles of substances consumed and produced in
a chemical reaction
• masses of substances consumed and produced
in a chemical reaction
• limiting reactants
• theoretical yields
Percent composition of compounds
Percent composition of compounds
The percent composition of a compound refers to the mass percent
of each of the elements in the compound
The percent composition of a compound can be determined from
experimental data without knowing the formula of the compound

Empirical formula versus molecular formula

compound: the empirical formula and the molecular formula

Calculate the mass percent of each element in the compound
mass % of zinc = 100 x ( 1.63 g / 2.03 g ) = 80.3% Zn
mass % of oxygen = 100 x ( 0.40 g / 2.03 g ) = 20.% O
Example of empirical formula determination
When heated in air, 1.63 g of zinc combines with 0.40 g of oxygen to form
zinc oxide. What is the empirical formula of the zinc oxide product?
empirical formula (simplest formula) -- gives the smallest whole-number
ratio of atoms of each element in the compound
-- i.e., the relative number of atoms of each element in the compound
The word empirical has a similar meaning to the word experimental
-- empirical formulas are based on results from laboratory techniques
(known as quantitative analysis) that determine the amount of a given
element in a substance
Note: The empirical formula does not give any information about;
• the exact number of atoms present in a molecule of the compound
• the structural arrangement of the atoms in a molecule of the compound

zinc oxide
(formula: ZnxOy)
Convert grams to moles
1.63 g Zn x ( 1 mol Zn / 65.39 g Zn ) = 0.0249 moles of Zn atoms
0.40 g O x ( 1 mol O / 16.00 g O ) = 0.025 moles of O atoms
Divide by smallest number of moles
Zinc: ( 0.0249 mol / 0.0249 mol ) = 1.0
Oxygen: ( 0.025 mol / 0.0249 mol ) = 1.0

Calculating empirical formulas
To calculate the empirical formula of a compound, you need to know
the following:
-- the elements that combine to form the compound
-- the molar masses for each of the elements
Calculating empirical formulas
Example: A compound is formed by combining 2.233 g of iron and 1.926
g of sulfur. What is the empirical formula of the compound?
Convert grams to moles
2.233 g Fe x ( 1 mol Fe / 55.85 g Fe ) = 0.03998 moles of Fe atoms
-- the mass percentages for each of the elements
1.926 g S x ( 1 mol S / 32.07 g S ) = 0.06006 moles of S atoms
1) Convert the mass of each element (grams) into moles
2) Divide the number of moles of each element by the smallest
number of moles
Divide by smallest number of moles (multiply by 2 to get whole numbers)
iron: ( 0.03998 mol / 0.03998 mol ) = 1.000
x 2 = 2.000
3) If the values from the preceding step are not whole numbers,
multiply them by the smallest factor that will result in whole
numbers
sulfur: ( 0.06006 mol / 0.03998 mol ) = 1.502
x 2 = 3.004
Assign subscripts to elements in the empirical formula
4) Use the whole numbers as subscripts for the elements in the
empirical formula

Empirical formula versus molecular formula
Calculating molecular formulas
empirical formula (simplest formula) -- gives the relative number of atoms
of each element in the compound
Remember that the molecular formula of a compound will either be the
same as its empirical formula or a whole number multiple of its empirical
formula
molecular formula (true formula) -- gives the exact number of atoms of
each element present in one molecule of the compound

as the empirical formula or a whole number
multiple of the molecular formula

Example (trivial): We saw that the empirical formula for water is H2O. The
Example: A sample of polypropylene contains 14.3 g of hydrogen and
85.7 g of carbon. Polypropylene has a molar mass of 42.08 g. What is
the molecular formula for polypropylene?
molar mass of water is 18.02 g. What is the molecular formula for water?
Step 1: Calculate the empirical formula
Molecular formula = (empirical formula)n = (H2O)n
Convert grams to moles
mass of empirical formula = 2 x (molar mass of H) + molar mass of O
14.3 g H x ( 1 mol H / 1.008 g H ) = 14.2 moles of H atoms

!
= 2 x ( 1.008 g ) + ( 16.00 g )

= 18.02 g
