Determining the equivalent weight of molecules.

  1. May 21, 2013 #1
    What is the equivalent weight of ozone molecule?
    I mean how can I find out the equivalent weight of molecules?

    Is it same as the equivalent weight of element?

    For example,

    FeCl3 ,what will be the equivalent weight of chlorine ?

    Actually I want to know the formula.For example for acid,eq. wt=mol. wt/basicity.Like this. I know only formulas for acid,base,salt and elements. However how can we find out the eq. wt for other substance like SO2,CO2,O3,H2O etc.

    *Note*-please see my this post also. https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=4391617#post4391617
