  • Empirical FormulaThe empirical formula gives the simplest whole number ratio of each type of atom in a compounde.g. The molecular formula of butane is C4H10The empirical formula of butane is C2H5

    Molecular FormulaA molecular formula shows the elements that a compound is made out of and the number of atoms of each element present in one molecule of the compound. The numbers are shown written as subscripts.

    e.g.

    The molecular formula of butane is C4H10

    One molecule of ethane contains 4 carbon atoms and 10 hydrogen atoms.

    The molecular formula of water is H2O

    One molecule of water contains 2 hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.

  • ElementSymbolRelative Atomic MassHydrogen H1Carbon C12Oxygen O16Nitrogen N14Calcium Ca40Silicon Si28Relative molecular massMolecules are incredibly light so when discussing how heavy a molecule is Chemists often find the relative molecular mass. This is measured in atomic mass units. The table below shows the relative atomic masses of various elements which can be used to calculate the relative molecular mass of molecules.e.g.

    The molecular formula of butane is C4H10

    The relative molecular mass of ethane is 4 x 12 + 10 x 1 = 58 atomic mass units

  • Elemental AnalysisIs a technique that allows a chemist to workout (as a percentage) how much each element contributes to the total mass of the molecule. If you know these percentages you can work out what the empirical formula of a molecule so it can help Chemists work out what they have made.RatioPercentagesFractionsSubstitution

  • There a few different ways of using this resource:Fill in the gaps in the table (possibly in pairs- each use a different colour) Cut up the completed grid and use it as a card sort (possibly only use one slide rather than two)Print the reversed complete grid with a picture on the back of the page before you cut it out into cards. Put the cards in the correct places on the template grid. Flip over each card to reveal the picture (and hence check the cards are in the correct place.
