Why Does a Compound Composed of X and Y Always AVE the Same Ratio of X to Y?
A defined ration of components in a compound defines the properties of the compound. In the event of the altered ration of x and y will result in a different compound. An example of this fact is the ration of carbon and hydrogen in methane and ethane. The ration of carbon to hydrogen in methane is 1 to 4 whereas the ration in ethane 1 to 3.
