Formal charge helps to describe the number of bonds and electrons that are associated with each atom. Oxidation numbers refer to the total number of gained or lost electrons.

I think that the resonance structures can have different bond placements, making the formal charge different in some cases. However, if the same elements in each are bonded, then the charge will be the same.

Also, assuming that the percentages equal 100 grams will help get the empirical formula!

To find the number of photons. you would use a chart like Figure 1.1 in the textbook to find the energy of one photon, and then divide the total energy of the source by the energy of one photon to find the number of photons.

Because you can not have half of an atom, you have to make them whole numbers. Also, you have to make sure that you only change the coefficient only because changing subscripts would change the composition of the molecule.
