Hello There!!

Explanation:

The answer is↬The empirical formula is Ag2O. It is the simplest whole-number ratio of atoms in a compound.

hope this helps,have a great day!!

The empirical formula is Ag2O.

The empirical formula is Ag2O.Explanation:

The empirical formula is Ag2O.Explanation:The empirical formula is the simplest whole-number ratio of atoms in a compound.

The empirical formula is Ag2O.Explanation:The empirical formula is the simplest whole-number ratio of atoms in a compound.The ratio of atoms is the same as the ratio of moles. So our job is to calculate the molar ratio of Ag to 2O.

do the steps ...

To get this into an integer ratio, we divide both numbers by the smaller value.

From this point on, I like to summarize the calculations in a table.

There are 2 mol of Ag for 1 mol of O.
