1. 18 grams of water contains= 6.02*10^23 molecules.
0.05 grams of water contains= 6.02*10^23*0.05/18= 1.67*10^21                  molecules. (ans.)

2. 1 molecule of water contains= 2 atoms of hydrogen.
1.67*10^21 molecules of water contains= 2*1.67*10^21= 3.34*10^21          atoms of hydrogen. (ans.)

3. 1 molecule of water contains= 1 atoms of oxygen.
1.61*10^21 molecules of water contains= 1.67*10^21 atoms of                   oxygen. (ans.)

4. Element   Percentage   Atomic Weight   Percentage/at.wt. Least Ratio
Fe           53.73            56                      53.73/56=0.95       0.95/0.95=1
S             46.27            32                      46.27/32=1.44     1.44/0.95=1.5
(continuation of the table)
Simple Ratio
2*1=2
2*1.5=3
Therefore, empirical formula of the compound is Fe2S3.
