30.98g / 71.00g * 100 gives you percent composition... As for empirical you need to 1) write a balance equation , 2) find your amount of P and O. 3) Take lower amount (in moles) and divide the other variable by that number. Those 2 numbers ( 1 and another , can be anything) will give you your empirical formula which should be in the form of (P)x(O)y
Alright, I got the percent composition (43.6338%), but I don't know where to start for the balance equation.
write your equation. So you have phosphorous + oxyygen yields phosphorus oxide. Balance it if needed
