2 Atomic MassesAbsolute masses of atoms cannot be obtained – too small to measure the mass directly;Relative atomic masses are used instead – masses relative to a chosen standard or reference.Carbon-12 is used as atomic mass reference – it is assigned an atomic mass of 12 u exactly;Other atoms are assigned masses relative to that of carbon-12;Relative atomic masses are determined using mass spectrometer;
7 Calculation of Relative Atomic Masses Example-1:An atomic mass spectrum gives atomic mass ratio of oxygen atom to carbon-12 as :1. If the atomic mass of carbon-12 is exactly 12 u, what is the atomic mass of oxygen?Atomic mass of oxygen = x 12 u= u

23 Molecular Formula Correct molecular formula = C6H12O2 Molecular formula is derived from empirical formula and molecular mass, which is obtained independentlyEmpirical formula = CxHyOz; molecular formula = (CxHyOz)n,where n = (molecular mass/empirical formula mass)Example:A compound has an empirical formula C3H6O and its molecular formula is u.
