Problem 109P

Determine the chemical formula of each compound and refer to the formula to calculate the mass percent composition of each constituent element.

(a) copper(II) iodide

(b) sodium nitrate

(d) calcium fluoride

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 109P

Here, we have to calculate the mass percent composition of each constituent element.The mass percent composition or mass percent of an element is that the  percentage  of the element present in  compound’s total mass.

% mass = (mass of element in 1 mole of the compound) / (molar mass of the compound) x 100%

(a) copper(II) iodide

The chemical formula of the compound is CuI2.

Molar mass of Copper iodide = 63.546 g/mol + 2x 126.904 g/mol

= 317.354 g/mol

Molar mass of Cu = 63.456 g/mol

Molar mass of I = 126.904 g/mol

Thus,

Mass percent of I = x 100

=  79.97% Mass percent of Cu = x 100

=  19.99 % Thus, the chemical formula of the compound is CuI2.

And  the mass percent of Cu is 19.99 % and

The mass percent of I is 79.97% (b) sodium nitrate

The chemical formula of the compound is NaNO3.

Molar mass of Na = 22.989 g/mol

Molar mass of N = 14.0 g/mol

Molar mass of O = 16.0 g/mol

Molar mass of NaNO3 = 22.989 g/mol + 14.0 g/mol +3 x 16.0 g/mol

= 84.989 g/mol

Thus,

Mass percent of Na = x 100

=  27.05  %

Mass percent of N  = x 100

=  16.47 %

Mass...
