1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the Empirical Formula of a compound which, when analyzed, is shown to consist of 62.07% carbon, 27.59% oxygen and 10.34% hydrogen. The answer is supposedly C3OH6 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution First,I started by writing the ratio: C : O : H Then, under each, I wrote the respective percentages. I divided everything by the lowest percentage (10.34), giving me a ratio of 6:2.668:1, (C6O3H). I have no real idea of what to do or where I went wrong. Thanks so much for your help!
