1 Answer

Solution :-

Given: Mass of the sample compound = 0.24g, mass of boron = 0.096g, mass of oxygen = 0.144g

To calculate percentage composition of the compound:

Percentage of boron = mass of boron / mass of the compound x 100

= 0.096g / 0.24g x 100 = 40%

Percentage of oxygen = 100 - percentage of boron

= 100 - 40 = 60%
