A 0.24 g sample of compound of oxygen and boron was found by analysis to contain 0.096 g of boron and 0.144 g of oxygen. Calculate the percentage composition of the compound by weight.

Answers (1)

The total mass of the compound = 0.24 g

Mass of boron in the compound = 0.096 g

Mass of oxygen in the compound = 0.144 g

Now, As we know,

The percentage of an element in the compound :

 =fractotal:mass:of:elementtotal:mass:of:compound	imes 100

So,

The percentage of Boron in the compound by weight :

=frac0.0960.24	imes 100

=40\%

The percentage of Oxygen in the compound by weight :

=frac0.1440.24	imes 100

=60 \%
