Menthol $(\mathscr{M}=156.3 \mathrm{g} / \mathrm{mol})$ , the strong-smelling substance in many cough drops, is a compound of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. When 0.1595 $\mathrm{g}$ of menthol was burned in a combustion apparatus, 0.449 $\mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ and 0.184 $\mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$ formed. What is menthol's molecular formula?

A sample of a certain metal has a volume of $4.0 \times 10^{-5}$ $\mathrm{m}^{3} .$ The metal has a density of 9.0 $\mathrm{g} / \mathrm{cm}^{3}$ and a molar mass of 60

$\mathrm{g} / \mathrm{mol} .$ The atoms are bivalent. How many conduction electrons $(\mathrm{or}$

valence electrons) are in the sample?

(a) Calculate the molarity of a solution made by dissolving 12.5 grams of $\mathrm{Na}_{2} \mathrm{CrO}_{4}$ in enough water to form exactly 750 $\mathrm{mL}$ of solution. (b) How many moles of KBr are present in 150 $\mathrm{mL}$ of a 0.112$M$ solution? (c) How many milliliters of 6.1$M \mathrm{HCl}$ solution are needed to obtain 0.150 $\mathrm{mol}$ of $\mathrm{HCl}$ ?
