Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, sorry i read the question as if they only wanted the total number of carbon atoms. Hm can we assume that the rest of the matter on the organic compound is only hydrogen? If so, then you can compare the moles of carbon and the moles of hydrogen and get the empirical formula.
