Question and answer
The chemical formula of a compound does NOT indicate the ____. a. identity of the elements in the compound b. how elements are joined in the compound c. the composition of the compound d. relative
proportions of the elements in the compound
very correct chemical formula tells you the proportions of the elements so therefore it is not d. [ in H2SO4, there are 2 Hydrogen, 1 Sulfur, and 4 Oxygen atoms. every correct chemical formula tells you the identity of the elements in the compound so it is not "a". CuSO4 ....you have a Copper atom, a Sulfur atom, and some Oxygen atoms. it tells you the composition, NaCl is made of sodium and
chloride atoms. it does not tell you how they are joined, such as what elements have what kind of bonds....single, double, triple. The answer is B. ]
