What is the empirical formula of C2H6?

Dec 19th, 2014

Empirical formula of any compound is a formula with the lowest whole number ratio of elements in a compound.

C2H6 can be divided by 2 for each element.

Thus, C1H3 is an empirical formula for this compound.

However, we don't usually write C1Hx, thus, the final answer is: CH3
