Problem: Calculate the mass percent composition of lithium ion in Li 3PO4.a. 30.72 %b. 55.27 %c. 20.82 %d. 26.75 %e. 17.98 %

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate for the percent by mass (mass %) of  lithium ion (Li) in Li 3PO and to do that we’re going to use the mass percent formula shown below:


mass percent = mass element total mass of compound×100


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