Homework Help: Finding the chemical equation

  1. Oct 30, 2005 #1
    My question is about finding the chemical equation and name of wrongly labeled element given the molecular weight of the formula and weights of two of the elements. The problem gives the overall molecual weight of the formula as 150 grams/mole. Then it says there is 1.00grams of chloriene in it and 1.36 grams of a "so called" Illinium. From this, how do I go about finding the formula for the problem and what element Illinium really is?

    If there are 1.00grams of chlorine for every 1.36 grams of "Illinium" how many grams of the 150grams/mole of the molecular weight is due to chlorine?
