due to the centrifical force the molecule speed up and change

12 atoms of carbon, 22 atoms of hydrogen, and 11 atoms of oxygen. It is sucrose, or table sugar.

Table sugar (sucrose) contains 12 atoms of carbon (C), 22 atoms of hydrogen (H) and 11 atoms of oxygen (O) for each molecule. So, the number of molecules in sugar will depend on the weight of sugar you have. The more the weight, the more molecules. But in one molecule of sugar there are 45 atoms.

Yes. Table sugar consists of an organic molecule known as sucrose. Sucrose contains many carbon and hydrogen atoms. Because of this, a molecule of sugar is much large than a molecule of water, which consists only of an oxygen atom bonded to two hydrogen atoms.

That depends on what kind of sugar you're talking about. Table sugar, or sucrose, has the formula C12H22O11. One molecule of sucrose has 22 hydrogen atoms. Blood sugar, or glucose, has the formula C6H12O6. One molecule of glucose has 12 hydrogen atoms. Other types of sugar have different formulas. If you know the chemical formula, look at the subscript to the right of the H to see how many hydrogen atoms are in one molecule of sugar.

There are no oxygen atoms in a molecule of table salt. Table salt is sodium and chlorine.

Yes, sugar like all organic compounds contains carbon. Table sugar or sucrose is C12H22O11, so each molecule contains 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms.

Table sugar - sucrose - contains 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms per molecule. Other sugars have different formulae.

The chemical formula for sucrose (table sugar) is C12H22O11. This means there are 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms in a molecule of sucrose.

The chemical name for table sugar (also called cane sugar or beet sugar or, by most people, simply "sugar") is sucrose, with a molecular formula of C12H22O11.To a chemist, "sugar" is not a single compound but a class of compounds.The chemical name for table sugar is sucrose. An older term for sugar that is no longer in use is saccharose. Sucrose consists of 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms.

If you're asking for the number of atoms, it would be 45. Chemical Formula: C12H22O11

Sugar has 12 Carbons, 22 Hydrogens and 11 Oxygen atoms in each molecule. If you look up a picture on Google images, you can see what it looks like.
