When we're told that a compound is made of some percentages of elements, like C, O, H, and N, and then we calculate the empirical and molecular formulas, how do we know which order to put the elements in the formula? Like if the ratios are 6 C to 4 O to 1 H to 2 N, how do we know if it's C6O4HN2 or C6HN2O4 or any other iteration?
