the empirical formula has the smallest whole number for their subscript whereas the molecular formula is the actual number of molecules or atoms in a compound. Some empirical formulas can be the molecular formula, btw.
For ex- the compound CO2 has same molecular and empirical formula
whereas H2O2 has empirical formula as HO and the molecular formula as H2O2
