Hello students, hope you are doing great. In this question we are given that acetic acid and formaldehyde have same empirical formula that is CH2O and we are asked whether they have different kinds of cation or anions, do they have different kinds of atoms in them and do they have different or the same molecular formula. So the answer to the first question is they do not have different cations or anions as both are neutral molecules, neutral molecules and net ionic…
