Say you were given an unknown mixture of potassium chlorate and potassium chloride. First off what would the formula for this reaction be. Second how would one determine the experimental percentage of potassium chlorate in the unknown sample, the emperical formula, the number of moles of potassium chlorate decomposed and the number of moles of O2 lost? Thanks

chlorate = $$ClO_{3}^{-}$$.

What is the exact question here though ?
