The chemical formula of Benzene is C6H6 .

It has 6 carbon and 6 hydrogen atoms and has a ring shaped structure.

Each hydrogen is bonded to a carbon and there are alternate single and double bonds present between carbon atoms.

Therefore, it has resonance between its atoms and it is a hybrid to two canonical forms.
