Empirical Formulas

High schoolers investigate empirical formulas for molecules. In this empirical formulas lesson plan, students use paper ions to form formulas and they show these are empirical formulas. They use ions of carbon and hydrogen showing electron dots and they make alkanes and determine their empirical formulas. They solve problems for empirical formulas and they find molecular formulas given molecular mass and empirical formulas.
