I apologize if this was put under the wrong category*
I cannot seem to get a grasp on the combustion and I have a major quiz on it tomorrow, so I'm trying to understand it before then. If you could walk through the steps on how to solve the given problem, that would be really helpful because I cannot understand my notes either.
A compound (molecular mass = 90.04) contains carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Combustion of a .513 g sample produces .501 g of CO2 and .103 g of water. What is the molecular formula of the compound?
