Two unknown compounds are tested. Compound I contains 15.0g of hydrogen and 120.0g of oxygen. Compound II contains 2.0g of hydrogen and 32.0g of oxygen. Are the compounds the same? Explain your answer.
No, percent by mass of is not the same in each compound:
Compound I: 11% hydrogen, 89% oxygen
Compound II: 5.8% hydrogen, 94.2% oxygen
Complete the table and describe the relationship between the two iron oxide compounds:
How do the masses of iron in each compound compare to each other?
