Is the formula for methane both a molecular and an empirical formula?

Yes. The formula CH4 represents the lowest whole number ratio of carbon to hydrogen atoms, so it is an empirical formula, and it is also the molecular formula for methane.

What molecular formulas are also an empirical formula?

Any molecular formula where the subscripts do not have a common factor that can divide them all. For example: CH4 (methane) is a molecular formula that is also an empirical formula because there is no number (other then one) that can divide both the 4 and the 1. Take ethane as another example. It hasn't the empirical formula which is similar to the molecular formula.

How are the empirical and molecular formulas for a compound related?

A molecular formula is identical to the empirical formula, and is based on quantity of atoms of each type in the compound.The relationship between empirical and molecular formula is that the empirical formula is the simplest formula, and the molecular can be the same as the empirical, or some multiple of it. An example might be an empirical formula of C3H8. Its molecular formula may be C3H8 , C6H16, C9H24, etc. Looking at it the other way, if the molecular formula is C6H12O6, the empirical formula would be CH2O.
