Molar Mass -round to two decimal places Of a compound Li2CrO4 Lithium Chromate: Contains 2 moles Li, 1 mol Cr, and 4 mol O. 128.87g Li- 6.941x2=13.882g Cr- 51.996g O-15.999x4=63.996g Percent Composition: step 1: calculate formula mass Mg: 1 x 24.3 = 24.3 Cl: 2 x 35.4 = 70.8 ---- formula mass = 95.1 step 2: divide each component mass by the formula mass and multiply by 100 Mg: 24.3/95.1 x 100 = 25.6% Cl: 70.8/95.1 x 100 = 74.4% step 3: make certain the percentages add up to 100 (+/- 0.1) 25.6 + 74.4 = 100
