The molecular formula for cyclohexane is C6H12. Cyclohexane is a cycloalkane compound meaning it is a alkane compound whose carbon atoms are joined in rings. The structure of cyclohexane is a hexagon ring of bonded carbon atoms (six bonded carbons) encased by 12 hydrogen atoms (each carbon atom being bonded with two hydrogens).

What is the empirical formula for cyclohexane?

The empirical formula for cyclohexane is CH2. The molecular formula of cyclohexane is C6H12. Since an empirical formula gives only the proportions of elements present in a compound but not the actual numbers or arrangement of atoms the formula is CH2.

Is C6H12 an alkene?

This could be the molecular formula for an alkene, but it is also the molecular formula of cyclohexane, which is not an alkene. Therefore, the question has no unambiguous answer.

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

the empirical formula only gives the amount of each element as a ratiothe molecular formula gives the actual number of atoms of each element in a molecule of the compoundFor example these compounds all have the same empirical formula (CH2) but different molecular formulas: ethylene C2H4butene C4H8cyclohexane C6H12cyclooctane C8H16cyclodecane C10H20etc.
