I am not now nor have I ever been any kind of chemist.
My question is, how is the formula for Cerin, C30H50O2, consistent with this diagram taken from Chemspider?
I can count the 30 Carbon atoms, assuming that each vertex of a hexagon is a single C. I can obviously see the two Oxygen atoms. But when I count the Hydrogens, I can only get to 28. Where are the other 22?
Thank you for your patience.
