Empirical Formulas

Calculating Empirical Formula of a Compound

This video explains what the empirical formula of a compound is, and how to find it based on the molecular formula. An important first step!

Calculating Molecular Formula From Empirical Formula

You won't usually see this type of problem on its own -- it's usually just a step in a longer problem -- but since those longer problems always tend to be super tricky, it's a good idea to master this step first.

Finding Molecular Formula Using Percent Composition

These are the big nasty word problems we've been building towards. They look super-hard when you first see them, but by breaking them down into the step-by-step process in this video, most students end up looking forward to these on the test as "easy" points. Compared to Stoichiometry, anyways!
