Chap 2 Sec 1-6sm.doc 9/09 Page 1 Chapter 2 2.1 Elements, Compounds, & Mixtures - 2.2 Observations That Led to an Atomic View of Matter Mass Conservation Total weight of reactants -----> Definite Composition: Each compound has a specific weight ratio of elements Example problem. How we can use this information and the weight ratios. Similar to follow-up 2.2. We know: 1.27 g of galena (a compound of lead & sulfur) contains 1.10 g of Pb and the rest is S. a) How many grams of sulfur are in the compound? 1.27 g galena –1.10 g Pb b) What is the mass fraction of Pb and S? and c) What is the mass % of Pb and S? Lead: mass fraction part whole = 1.10 g Pb 1.27 g galena = 0.866 1 mass % = part whole ( mass fraction) x 100% 0.866 1 mass fraction x 100% =
