Hi, Does anyone know when we should make sure to calculate elements in their diatomic forms? For example, when finding calculating for empirical and molecular formulas, is there ever a time that we would not double the mass of nitrogen, oxygen, or any of the other elements that only exist in diatomic form/ or, do we know if the problem will make it clear that we need to calculate the elements in diatomic form?
I usually do not use diatomic forms during mass composition. For instance, if the problem asks to find the amount of Cl in HCl. I think it usually depends on the problem whether or not you use diatomic molecules.
