% by weight of helium

Assume a mixture of radon and helium is separated by diffusion. What % by weight of the gases would be helium?

Mass Percent, atom percent, mass fraction, elemental fraction

To do any mass percent question one must first understand a little about fractions. If one has a fruit basket, with 3 apples, 2 oranges, 4 bananas, and a grapefruit, we could say that there is %30 apples in the basket, %20 oranges and so on if we were talking about the percentage by fruit. If we were talking about percenta

Electrochemistry: mass and charge equations

Electrochemistry can be used to measure electric current in a silver coulometer. The cathode is weighed before and after the passage of the current. A silver cathode initially has a mass of 10.77 grams and its mass increases to 12.89 grams after current has flowed for 15.0 minutes. Compute the quantity of charge in coulombs a

Empirical & Molecular Formula

When phosphorus is burnt in a free supply of air, diphosphorous pentoxide is formed. During later stages of combustion in a limited supply of air, the flame becomes larger greenish and flickering. Another phosphorus oxide is formed which is a white waxy crystalline solid which melts @ 23.8 degrees C and becomes a gas @ 176 degre
