What is the difference between molecular formulas and empirical formulas?

"Molecular formulas show the total number of each atom in the molecule. Empirical formulas only show the ratio of the elements in the molecule. For example - acetate Molecular Formula Empirical Formula C6H12O6 CH2O " I just wanted to note that although this is correct the chemical formula in the example "C6H12O6" is not acetate. It is glucose. Acetate is a derivative of acetic acid.
