We are asked to calculate for the percent by mass (mass %) of oxygen in C14H19NO2 and to do that we’re going to use the mass percent formula shown below:


Mass Percent = Mass of element Total mass of compound× 100%


For the percent by mass O, we’re going to rewrite the equation as:


Mass Percent O= Mass of Omass of C14H19NO2× 100%
