Title: Classical molecular weight determinations
Author: Jensen, William B.
Description: Molecular weights were of no interest to chemists until the advent of John Dalton’s (figure 1) atomic theory in the first decade of the 19th century, when they became relevant in two distinct ways. The first of these has to do with the fact that calculation of a compound’s compositional formula using atomic weights and gravimetric composition gives information on only the relative number of each atom present, rather than the total number.1 Curiously this distinction does not appear to have been appreciated by Dalton.
