Mass of C = 17.9 g
So, Moles of C = 17,9/12 = 1.49
Mass of H = 1.68
So, Moles of H = 1.68 / 1 = 1.68
Mass of O = 4.225
So, Moles of O = 4.225 / 16 = 0.264
Mass of N = 1.228
So, Moles of N = 1.228/14 = 0.088
So, Molar ratio C : H : O : N = 1.49 : 1.68 : 0.264 : 0.088
Dividing by the smallest i.e. 0.088 = 16.93 : 19.09 : 3 : 1 == 17 : 19 : 3 : 1
So , empirical fomrula = C17H19O3N

Presenting data in the form of table. For the data set shown by the table, Solve,
a) Create a scatter plot for the data.
b) Use the scatter plot to determine whether an exponential function, a logarithmic function, or a linear function is the best choice for modeling the data. (If applicable, you will use your graphing utility to obtain these functions.)
