stoichiometric terminology

Postby Chase Yonamine 1J » Tue Oct 02, 2018 10:26 pm

In the question," How many formula units of the compound are present in 5.15g?" What does formula units mean?

I believe "formula units" refers to the amount of atoms that are in the 5.15g sample of the compound.

Another way of thinking of formula units is simply number of atoms the difference is for an element it is referred to as atoms, but for an ionic compound it is referred to as formula units. They both measure the moles per mass.
