Consider an equimolar mixture (equal number of moles) of two diatomic gases (A2 and B2) in a container fitted with a piston. The gases react to form one product (which is also a gas) with the formula AxBy. The density of the sample after the reaction is complete (and the temperature returns to its original state) is 1.50 times greater than the density of the reactant mixture.
a. Specify the formula of the product, and explain if more than one answer is possible based on the given data.
b. Can you determine the molecular formula of the product with the information given or only the empirical formula?
