### Percent composition

C-notes on page 64

Example: Find the % composition of all of the elements within a glucose molecule using the molecules molar mass. You will have to know how to do this to complete future objectives.

• Glucose: molecular formula = C6H12O6
• (will be given information)
• Find the molar mass of the compound
• Find the % of each element with in the compound:

element mass x 100 = %composition

molar mass

Glucose: molecular formula = C6H12O6

molar mass =

(12.01 g/mol x 6) + (1.01 g/mol x 12) + (16.00 g/mol x 6)

= 72.06 g/mol + 12.12 g/mol + 96.00 g/mol

= 180.18 g/mol

% composition of carbon
• 72.06 g/mol = .3999 x 100 = 39.99% carbon

180.18 g/mol

% composition of hydrogen
• = 12.12 g/mol = .0673 x 100 = 6.73% hydrogen

180.18 g/mol

% composition of oxygen

= 96.00 g/mol= 0.5328 x 100 = 53.28% oxygen

180.18 g/mol

Check your answer
• The end result is that all parts of the compound should equal 100% (or very, very close due to rounding issues)
• 53.28% + 6.73% + 39.99% = 100%
Practice problems for pg 64will be part of notes
• Write the chemical formula
• Find the molar mass
• Find % composition of each element in compound
• Sodium chloride
• Aluminum hydroxide
• Ammonium phosphide
• Summarize notes and complete practice for stamp
Bubble gum lab
• This will be turned in for a grade.
• You will need 5 pieces of unchewed gum.
• We will be going to the lab. While in the lab you need to do the pre lab and steps #1 and #2.
• DO NOT CHEW THE GUM YET!!!!!!!!!
