Calculate the mass percent composition of nitrogen in each compound.
Step 1 of 3
1) Mass of one mole of N2O = molar mass of N2O
= (14 * 2) + 16
= 44 g
Number of N moles in one N2O mole = 2
Mass of one mole of N = molar mass of N =14g
Therefore, mass of N in one mole of N2O = 14 * 2 = 28 g
But one mole of N2O means 44g of N2O
Therefore percentage mass of N in N2O = (28 g / 44 g) * 100 %
= 63.63 % .
2) mass of one mole of NO=molar mass of NO
Number of N moles of one NO mole =1
Mass of one mole of N=molar mass of N=14 g.
Therefore ,mass of N in one mole of NO=14*1=14g
But one mole of NO means 30 g of NO.
Therefore ,mass of N in NO=(14/30)*100
