Percent composition from chemical formula Problem: The molecular formula of Tylenol is C 8 H 9 NO 2 . Determine mass percent of H, C, N, O Mass C 8 mol x 12.011 g/mol=96.088g H 9 mol x 1.0079 g/mol =9.0711g N 1 mol x 14.007 g/mol=14.007 g O 2 mol x 15.999 g/mol=31.998 g Molar mass of Tylenol=151.16 g Mass percent (96.088/151.16)x100% (9.0711/151.16)x100% (14.007/151.16)x100% (31.998/151.16)x100% 64%C , 6%H, 9%N , 21%O
