Expert's answer

1. To calculate formula mass, multiply the subscript of each element in the formula by the element's atomic weight (relative atomic mass) found on the periodic table. The unit for formula mass is either u or Da (Daltons).

2. Mr(C7H5NO3S) = 183.18

3. M(C7H5NO3S) = 183.18 g/mol

4. C7H5NO3S

5. 1 mol

6. 366mg/183g/mol = 0.002 mol

7. 183 g

8. 6.02*10^23 molecules 

9. N(C) = m*7/M = 91.5g*7/183g/mol

10. 45.8963% of C, 2.7512% of H, 7.6462% of N, 17.5042% of S, 26.2021% of O
