### Re: Similar Formulas[ENDORSED]

Yes , since it can not be simplified by anything it would make the empirical and molecular formula the same.

### Re: Finding Empirical and Molecular Formula[ENDORSED]

Since the empirical and the molecular formula are the same, we look at the molecular structure to find the molecular formula since it shows the actual number of atoms and then to find the empirical formula we use the molecular formula. Then we divide the molecular formula by the highest common denom...

### Re: Molecular to Empirical[ENDORSED]

We can obtain the empirical formula through the molecular formula, by dividing by its highest common denominator. Due to the fact that the molecular is the actual number of atoms, while the empirical is the relative number of atoms.

### Re: Empirical and Molecular the same[ENDORSED]

Yes, the molecular and empirical are the same in this case since the empirical formula shows the smallest ratio possible.That is why the molecular formula shows the actual number of atoms whereas the empirical shows the relative number of atoms. For example, the molecular formula for C6H1206 would h...

### Re: Moles mols mol?[ENDORSED]

I agree you can use moles, mols, mol they all carry the same meaning when defining moles. However, do not get confused with M= molarity.

### Re: wavelength description[ENDORSED]

According to the book, the amplitude is the height of the wave above the center line. Similar to the figure that Lavelle drew in class, where the amplitude was the height of the wavelength. The wave is characterized by its amplitude and wavelength.
