An analysis of a wet sludge sample on a ppm weight basis indicates a value of 2900 ppm. The sample has a dry solids content of 19% (by weight) or a moisture content of 81% (by weight).

An analysis of a wet sludge sample on a ppm weight basis indicates a value of 2900 ppm. The sample has a dry solids content of 19% (by weight) or a moisture content of 81% (by weight). I have seen numerous computations including: ppm dry = ppm wet/% solids or, ppm dry = ppm wet/% moisture content Which is correct....

Calculating Percent Yield

1.Sn(IV)4? -my experimental value was 0.194g and my melting point: 147 C - my balanced equation Sn + 2I2 -------> SnI4 - we used .24g of Sn, 0.95g I2 (I got 1.25 g as my theoretical value didn't look right so I need to double check) 2.Sn(II)I2? -my experimental value was 0.314g and melting point 160 C - balanced equa
