Finding EN value

  1. Jan 14, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How do I find the EN value for a compound with more than two elements?

    2. Relevant equations
    C6H12O6

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Do I just subtract all EN values?

    I don't think so bc then I get negative numbers so confused.

    "EN" means very little within context; application "out of context" (the carbohydrate formula) is totally meaningless.
