    • Simplest ratio of the atoms of each element present in a compound
    • Steps to calculate empirical formula
      • Step 1) Find the masses of each element/ treat percentages as masses
        • Step 2) Find the number of moles of atoms of each element n=m in g/M in g & c in dm^-3=n/V in dm^3
          • Step 3) Find the simplest ratio by dividing all the values of moles by the smallest value mole
