Table sugar - sucrose - contains 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms, and 11 oxygen atoms per molecule.

Other sugars have different formulae.

No. They do not have same mass. Mass of carbon atom is 12 times that of hydrogen atom and mass of oxygen is 16 times that of hydrogen atom.

Perfect Burn: CxHy (Carbon times Hydrogen)+Oxygen=Carbon Dioxide+Water Imperfect Burn: CxHy+Oxygen=Carbon Dioxide+Water+Carbon Monoxide+CxHy

the basic formula is C6H12O6, so there are twice as many number of hydrogen-to-oxygen atoms. This applies to carbon atoms as well when compared to hydrogen atoms.

- The mass ratio of carbon to oxygen in carbon dioxide is always 3:8. - In a molecule of water, the mass of oxygen is always 8 times the mass of hydrogen.

The mass ratio of carbon to oxygen in carbon dioxide is always 3:8 In a molecule of water, the mass of oxygen is always 8 times the mass of hydrogen

There is sixty percent water in your body. Water is made up of oxygen and hydrogen. There are double the number of hydrogen atoms or molecules as compared to oxygen in the water. But you have the mass of oxygen atom or molecule is 16 times more than that of hydrogen atom or the molecule. In case of water hydrogen to oxygen mass is one to eight, in proportion.

This is true for mass-%. Oxygen is 16 times heavier than hydrogen, that outfigures the double elemental ratio for hydrogen to oxygen (2:1) by factor 8 times.

Deuterium-carbon bonds are generally 6-10 times more stable than carbon-hydrogen bond.

A carbon atom is about 1.5 times as big as a hydrogen atom.You'd need to be more specific about what you mean by "a carbon molecule". Carbon molecules can be enormous.

Glucose: C6 H12 O6 Carbon: 6 times 12 = 72 Hydrogen: 12 times 1 (actually 1.008) = 12 Oxygen: 6 times 16 = 96 All together that makes the molecular weight of Glucose is 180

The masses of hydrogen, oxygen, and all the elements are on the periodic table. The mass for hydrogen is 1.01, and that for oxygen, 16.0, so a single oxygen atom weighs as much as 16 hydrogen atoms.

By number of atoms it has more hydrogen, by mass it has more oxygen. Each water molecule contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. However, a typical oxygen atom has about 16 times the mass of a typical hydrogen atom.

Well the symbol for water is H2O so there are 2 hydrogen for every 1 Oxygen, which means there will be two times the amount of hydrogen atoms than oxygen. Hope this helps :)

There is 21% oxygen in the atmosphere and 300 ppm (0.03%) carbon dioxide. This translated to 700 times more oxygen than carbon dioxide.

It isn't. Carbon is 6th on the Periodic Table and Oxygen is 8. Oxygen is the heavier element. mass of oxygen / mass of carbon 15.99g / 12.01g = 1.33 heavier than carbon

Oxygen atoms have a mass that is roughly sixteen times that of hydrogen. Hydrogen atoms have 1 proton and 1 electron. Oxygen atoms have 8 protons, 8 neutrons and 8 electrons.

Organic compounds may also contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. Many times sulfur can also be found but is not required.

hydrogen and oxygen ions and some times impurities

Yes, the amount of hydrogen atoms in glucose is 12, and the amount of oxygen atoms is 6, therefore, there are two times as many hydrogen atoms than oxygen atoms in a molecule of glucose. C6-H12-O6 is the formula.

Glucose has the formula C6H12O6 so there are 12 hydrogen atoms and 6 oxygen atoms. Thus, the number of hydrogen atoms is 2x the number of oxygen atoms.

The ratio of hydrogen to oxygen atoms in monosaccharides and water is 2H:1O.

It poisons the brain and blocks oxygen. Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin 100 times greater than oxygen.
