Formula Units vs. Molecules

Postby Dayna Pham 1I » Sun Sep 30, 2018 10:33 pm

Hello!
With regards to question E21, it asks for the answer in molecules and formula units. What is the difference between molecules and formula units?

Thank you!

I believe molecular unit refers to the mass of an entire molecular compound and formula unit refers to the mass of an ionic compound. These are defined on page F42 in the 7th edition book.
