IV B. Calculations:

1. Mass of Mixture Determination of the mass of the mixture: Mass= (Mass of Test tube and Mixture) – (Mass of Test Tube) Mass= 24.89g – 19.32g Mass= 5.57g

2. Mass of Silicon Dioxide Determination of the mass of Silicon Dioxide Mass= (Filter paper with sand) – (Mass of Filter paper) Mass= 5.22g – 1.01g Mass= 4.21g

3. Percentage of Silicon Dioxide Determination of the percentage of Silicon Dioxide % Composition= Part/Whole x 100 % Composition = Mass of San/ Mass of Mixture x 100 % Composition = 4.21g/5.57g x 100 % Composition = 75.6%

4. Expected mass of sodium chloride Determination of expected mass of sodium chloride Mass of sodium chloride = (Mass of Mixture) – (Mass of Sand) Mass of sodium chloride = 5.57g – 4.21g Mass of sodium chloride = 1.36g...
