What is the emperical formula of benzene?
Benzene is an alkene, with four carbon atoms. Alkene have a general formula CnH2n, therefore the formula of benzene is C4H8. Now empirical formula is the simplest ratio of a compounds constituent atoms. In this case the ratio is 4:8, which can be simplified to 1:2. Thus the empirical formula of Benzene is CH2. In fact if you note the general formula of an alkene you can clearly see that the empirical formula for all alkenes will indeed be the same. ...
