Solution :-

Now for \(Na_{2}SO_{4}\)

Molar mass of \( Na_{2}SO_{4}\)

= [(2 x 23.0) + (32.066) + 4(16.00)]

=142.066 g

Formula to calculate mass percent of an element 

\(\dfrac{Mass\;of\;that\;element\;in\;the\;compound}{Molar\;mass\;of\;the\;compound}\times 100\)

Therefore, mass percent of the sodium element:

\(\dfrac{46.0g}{142.066g}\times 100\)

= 32.379

= 32.4%

Mass percent of the sulphur element:

\(\dfrac{32.066g}{142.066g}\times 100\)

= 22.57

= 22.6%

Mass percent of the oxygen element:

=\(\dfrac{64.0g}{142.066g}\times 100\)

= 45.049

= 45.05%
